One of the hallmarks of Children's House, which operates as a nonprofit 501(c)3, is the dedication of our Board of Directors and their commitment to our Mission. The Board works tirelessly throughout the year to secure donations through fundraising, private contributions, grant writing and in fiscal management of our endowment fund. Their role is also instrumental in defining current and long-range strategies to ensure OICH meets the needs and objectives of our community today and for the future.

Children's House would not be here today if it weren't for the dedication of these individuals. Please consider joining our Board today and make an impact on the future. Contact Executive Director Ady Walker for more information on how you can support.
