Transition Programs & Services

Suitcase Program

Making suitcases available for every foster youth aging out of the system. OCJ Kids provides one filled rolling duffle bag filled with essential and practical living resources and an empty suitcase for their personal belongings.

Pizza

Program

This program is designed to incentivize youth to call in to a volunteer or support community on a monthly basis to stay in contact with the youth, and help them on their journey into adulthood. If a youth calls in to check-in, we send them gift cards for Little Caesar’s Pizza

T-Mobile Phone Program

OCJ Kids partnered with T-Mobile to offer youth aging out of foster care with a free phone with unlimited data. Youth are required to call in once a month to a trained phone mentor. Mentors collet their information and track their progress on their individual journeys.

Phone

Mentor

OCJ Kids is looking for caring adults to serve as mentors for our T-Mobile Phone program. Volunteers must be available to talk with youth on a regular basis, providing them love, support, and guidance. All mentors must complete a brief training before volunteering for this program.

OUR MISSION

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.
