Opening Doors to a better quality of life through individual comprehensive services and community partnerships.

For forty-five years, OVO has been a catalyst for change and a vital part of the effort to address the issue of poverty for the families and individuals who live and work in our southern Indiana community.

We are a resource and referral agency; providing information and contact numbers for other service providers in the area who may be able to assist in breaking down the barriers that exist for low income individuals and families. All members of OVO, whether board members or staff, are committed to creating economic opportunities and community based solutions to poverty.

In 2009 over 4,400 individuals and families built assets, developed knowledge and skills, increased economic self-sufficiency, obtained quality child development services and family support, and/or met basic needs through the resources we provide.

This website is designed to describe our agency and all of the programs available for those eligible to participate. This site also gives us the opportunity to pay special tribute to those who work tirelessly to ensure that not only OVO's services are delivered, but that our community is a better place to live.
