Our Village Okeechobee moved to their new location and held an open house to the public on January 8th. After originally hoping to purchase their old property Our Village decided that the move was necessary in order to provide the services to their clients to the best of their ability.
The new location is at 205 NE 2nd street (The old Bass Funeral Home building). Our Village shares the building with Abney Construction and SLD Engineering. Right now, the staff of Our Village are organizing and clearing out the rooms but hope to be up and running by February.
The mission of Our Village Okeechobee is to provide families a hand up, not a hand out by providing comprehensive, spiritual, cultural, social, health and educational experiences for the community. Some of the services that Our Village Okeechobee provides are mental health peer support, tutoring, mentoring, therapy and more.
