About OCJ Kids: OCJ Kids was established in 1992 with the mission and vision to, “Help raise teens to be equipped for every good work” through its after school assistance programs.

Founders Gary and Tammie Webb’s passion was to reach out to the growing population of unsupervised youth aged 12-18 who were gathering after school with nothing productive to occupy their time and who were being tempted by negative influences, including gangs, drugs, and violent behavior.

Gary and Tammie knew these youth were making choices that would impact the rest of their lives and were determined to establish a program to offer positive activities and adult mentors who would not only encourage them to take the “right path,” but could show them how through direct assistance and role modeling.

In 1994, OCJ hosted its first on campus after school program and in 1996, the first of eight off campus “Target Zone” community youth centers.

In 2006, OCJ Kids launched the Fostering Connections project, providing tools resources, life skills training, financial literacy, and caring adult mentors for foster youth living in group homes.Our long term goal is to connect every foster youth in America with a loving caring community and provide quality transitional housing, building a foundation of success.
