Our History 

OIC of Clark County (OIC) is a private, not-for-profit, community based organization with 501(c) 3 status that has been in business in the Springfield/ Clark County Community for over fifty (50) years. The organization was founded locally by Mrs. Carol Scott.

For the past 30 years, OIC has been the Community Action Agency (CAA) for Clark County designated by the State of Ohio, Development Services Agency, Office of Community Assistance. As a CAA, OIC is responsible for addressing the needs of the economically disadvantaged youth and adult populations in the Clark County community. 

OIC's goal is to assist the disadvantaged residents of Clark County in transitioning from dependence to self reliance by providing them with the hope, skills, and opportunities for a better life. 

Throughout its history, OIC has served as a beacon of hope by providing counseling, youth programing, vocational training, resource referral services, job placement assistance, and emergency utility assistance to support low-income Clark County residents during their transition toward self-sufficiency.

OIC also seeks to proactively address the vicious cycles of poverty by partnering with local schools, government agencies, and private foundations to provide its alternative high school . These collaborative efforts provide youth with career awareness and readiness.

Since the COVID Pandemic, OIC has been assisting families in Springfield and Clark County with Rent, Mortgage, Property Tax, and Utility assistance.  OIC  also provides Vocational Training to assist those that have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic in gaining additional marketable skills.

Through all of its programs and services OIC serves over 5,000 low-income disadvantaged Clark County residents annually assisting them in becoming more self-sufficient through personal, academic, vocational, and occupational skill development.
