Volunteers are the core of OCA. We can always use an extra set of hands around the office, and we can’t follow through with our ministries without Christian’s ready to connect with others. If you are passionate about orphan care and are looking for a way to give back through your time and talents, contact us about getting involved. We will schedule a time to chat about your interests and skills, and find where you can best plug in. Volunteers can serve in numerous areas from in-office help to ministry area volunteers, such as becoming a life coach.
