Our aim: to make West Virginia the best place to live, work, and raise a family - no matter who are.

Our track record: 25 state policy victories (raising minimum wage, 180,000 West Virginians have health care, child care saved for 12,200 families); 155 healthy community teams trained and funded (farmers markets, walking trails, and more); 158+ candidates trained; 26 student chapters across the state; and more than 200 schools and congregations making a difference and helping to lead the charge against the AHCA and tax breaks for the wealthy.

"We don't fight on behalf of kids and families.  We are kids and families."  -- Lisa Wotring, OCOF Leader
