We are here to help those in need.  We receive requests from various sources in the community.   We welcome all requests to help but we must evaluate each one on it’s merit and ability to demonstrate the need versus the want.

We want to determine the resources we have or need and at what cost.  One thing we like to see if a shared solution including the person needing the assistance.  We do have criteria to determine options available.

What other options or resources have they sought?
What financial resources are available?
Is family aware of the need and can the help contribute as well?
What is at risk if no resolution is found?
Are we the best resource for this request?

The OCEAN Board of Directors will gather evaluate all requests and vote on the ability to help financially or with other methods to find an answer.  Our mission is to help and we will exhaust all means to do just that.
