Mission

     Ouachita Children’s Center is a non-profit child advocacy organization providing emergency shelter and quality services for youth and families, empowering them to achieve lifelong success.

Vision

     Ouachita Children’s Center sees itself as a community leader, breaking the cycles of asocial and negative behavior, as well as those of abuse and neglect for Arkansas youth, one child at a time. In the future, we envision the OCC facility and programs as expanded through success in greater funding as well as the construction of a longer term residential facility. We foresee successful ​OCC graduates as productive and serving in leadership roles in the community that has sustained them. Their success and that of OCC will be recognized and replicated by other national organizations.
