Opportunities for Williamson & Burnet Counties
- Non-Profit & Community Organizations
Opportunities for Williamson and Burnet Counties (OWBC) mission is helping people in need, particularly those living in poverty, achieve and maintain independence by partnering with area organizations to provide education, nutrition, housing, social and community support.
The goal of OWBC is to provide resources and opportunities to thousands of children, adults, and seniors annually, to realize educational growth, economic self-sufficiency, and improved quality of life. OWBC is the area's official Community Action Agency which provides a variety of services to the community in response to local needs. Currently, the programs include:
Head Start: Provides comprehensive child development and social services to low-income families with young children from pre-natal up to five years of age. Each year, the program serves over 600 low-income infants and toddlers from Williamson County.
Senior Nutrition/Meals on Wheels: Provides hot, nutritious noon-time meals to disabled adults and seniors age 60 and older. Meals are delivered (to homebound seniors) by caring volunteers to those unable to leave their home or prepare their own meals. Additionally, congregate meals are served at all four senior activity centers in Williamson County providing nutrition, socialization, activities, and educational seminars that assist in maintaining healthy and independent lifestyles. Over 144,000 meals were served to needy seniors in Williamson County in 2018.
Community Services: Provides energy assistance to low income families, families in crisis as well as to elderly persons.
