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.
Your tax deductible sponsorship through OCJ Kids is $75 per child. Any sponsorship of 20 or more children will include an invitation to participate in the Cowboy Camp experience, riding horses with the youth, interact with the youth as they participate in the cowboy games, and share your life story around the Council Fire.
Use of Proceeds:
$50 of the sponsorship goes to Western Destinations to cover the base costs of location rental, insurance, feed for the horses, transportation, shoeing and general maintenance, food and beverage, and staffing necessary for the horseback ride and cowboy games. This $50 fee covers only half of the costs of this type of event. $25 of the sponsorship will be presented to OCJ Kids to help them supply basic living supplies, suitcases, and clothes to these foster group home children and youth.

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.
