Our WeChat account has received 6000+ followers, posting 300+ messages every year to introduce our free services and workshops to the community.  We also recruited 216 volunteers who contributed 7,560 hours to assist our clients. Many volunteers have landed their dream job with the help of OCCSC.  


Other than government funding, OCCSC relies on the community, individual donations and sponsorships, to support seniors, youth, and people with special needs. We also run additional operational programs that are not funded by the government which include the Volunteer program, Virtual Youth and Homework Club, Youth Leadership Program, WeChat, and the OCCSC Ukrainian program.
