Community Support

OCC believes in taking care of its employees and its customers. We also believe it’s our responsibility to play an important role in the areas where our colleagues live and work. We have an obligation to be good corporate citizens; our values of stewardship and integrity carry over from the work we do in the financial markets to our neighborhoods. OCC proudly matches employee contributions, dollar for dollar, up to $50,000 annually. Each year OCC’s Employee Charitable Giving Program chooses three different organizations, one from each area of the country. The organizations for 2019 are:

Teen Living Programs is now Ignite! Ignite lights the spark of opportunity - standing with youth who are experiencing homelessness on their journey to a home and a future with promise. Ignite offers a comprehensive continuum of services to young people between the ages of 14 to 24 who are unstably housed or experiencing homelessness. Beyond meeting youths' immediate needs, our services provide youth with all the tools and support they need to succeed: stable housing; access to employment and education opportunities; primary and mental health care; lasting connections with caring adults, and the skills to live a healthy and independent life.

In 2018, more than 4,800 phone calls were fielded, prescreening 3,400 callers for eligibility and urgent service need. More than 700 families were placed in Family Gateway shelters or partner shelters.
