The Story Behind OverComing Sisters (OCS)
Our mission is to assist disenfranchized ladies (ages 19 and above in turning thier life around, by giving them a foundation of hope and loving them throughout the journey. Establishing life term relationships, we train the individuals, service members, sponsors and general supporters to be conscious of the need of social human connectedness. Our vision evolved when we discovered within ourselves and others we surveyed, that when that feeling of "need from another human being" is fulfilled, we are less likely to stray from doing what is right or wander down a path of nothingness. We seek to create healthy and wholesome interactive activities which directly serve the social, emotional and spiritual need of ladies of all ages and interests. This is done in a variety of ways, for example, in an effort to encourage participants, OCS sponsors birthday parties for girls 9-15 years who are eligible based on mothers status as a OCS participant; the party effort fostors social and emotional support, through connectedness for both the child and the parent. Our lilgirltalk site; furnishes music from our preferred list, printable party theme invitations, a priate monitored chat room and suggested low cost party ideas. We also host a monthly birthday party at FMSC for adult birthday girls!
