Please Help Make A Difference:

The orphan children of Arizona need you! Help them overcome the life of emptiness, devoid of many of the daily living and family provisions we take for granted. In many cases, these children will not have the opportunity to experience a Thanksgiving or Christmas with family and friends. They are the forgotten and faceless generation in our society and no one seems to care. We Care!

Please help us make a difference in the lives of these orphans of the living. Help us show them there are people who care, that they have NOT been forgotten, and there is a bright future in each of their lives. Help us give them a reason to smile and let them know there are better days ahead for each and every one of them.

This program will help these children step out of their comfort zones, reach out to each other for help, form deep friendship bonds, and have an experience that will stay with them the rest of their lives.

Use of Proceeds:

a donation of $55 allows OCJ Kids to take one group home child to Bearizona. this once in a life time opportunity allows the children to get away from the house during the summer, all while being an education experience. Inside the park they will be exposed to animals roaming about, a tour of the zoo portion by one of our staff, and lunch. this type of enrichment is pivotal to the success of these foster children. 

Help us make a difference in a child’s life today!



Youth are amazing! They hope, dream, challenge, learn and lay the groundwork for their futures and ours.  The education, experience and family values instilled in a teen will follow them for the rest of their lives.  Every day, youth in society are exposed to unhealthy and unstable futures.

OCJ Kids’ mission is to equip foster and at-risk children and youth by providing them tools, resources, and positive role models to succeed and excel in every area of life.
