TOOLS 4 SUCCESS
Tools 4 Success
Getting ready to go back to school is tough enough when you have a mom, dad, aunt, or uncle who are ready to go out and buy you the things you need to start off the new school year on the right foot.
It’s even harder when you’re living in a group or foster home and there’s no money available to buy you a new backpack, notebooks, or pencils.
At OCJ Kids we support an annual Tools 4 Success drive, designed to ensure that every kid who goes back to school can do so with one less thing to worry about.

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.
