Advocate - After you have become a friend with someone, you may consider becoming an advocate for him/her. In this role, you would assist the person to speak up for him/herself. You will be involved with planning goals, celebrating successes and communicating any concerns.

Day Services - Spend time with others during the day to learn new skills, pursue a hobby, teach basic skills such as reading, math or how to balance a checkbook, visit museums, or picnic in the park, go fishing and hunting with someone. These opportunities can be 1 on 1 or in small groups.

Job Coach - Teach someone about how to do a job, keep a job, how to get to work, how to dress for success, how to talk to a boss and speaking up for themselves. The goal is to assist them to be competitively employed.

Administrative - Assist the agency by answering phones, help with filing, painting, small repairs, gardening, or doing some light cleaning.

Donate Money:

One act of kindness can inspire an entire community. We encourage you to make a difference in the lives of many people with disabilities by making a donation to Oahe, Inc. Donated funds are used to directly impact the lives of the people that we support. Some examples include a memorial garden attached to our day services, an outdoor swing so that some individuals can enjoy being in their back yard, a ramp to make a home more accessible, participation in Special Olympics and much more. Every dollar donated makes a difference!

You can also specify what you would like your donation to be used for, like donating in memory of a loved one. Every donation helps assure that the Oahe, Inc. Foundation is here in the future with day services, advocacy, computers, etc. We appreciate every donation and honor your sacrifice by assuring that it makes a difference in some one's life.

If you prefer, you can designate your donation for the Oahe Inc. Foundation. The money is placed in a designated account and only used as prescribed by the Board of Directors.
