  • About

    Founded in 1955, Oberlin Community Services (OCS) is a responsive community organization that provides direct assistance, referrals, and other services to Oberlin and southern Lorain County residents who struggle to meet basic needs. By the measure of clients served, we are the largest “safety-net” agency in our service area. We are dedicated to our clients and strive to ensure their dignity and long-term well-being. Our choice food pantry, which is open 5 days/week, offers fresh produce, meat and specialty breads as well as non-perishable staple foods. Other programs include The People's Garden, client counseling and financial assistance, women's empowerment workshops, community building events, and volunteer and community service opportunities
