OCO Releases Annual Report

FULTON, NY – Oswego County Opportunities unveiled its annual report for 2009 at its annual meeting held March 24.

In addition to unveiling the annual report, OCO honored its valued employees and volunteers, and elected the new slate of officers for the agency’s board of directors.

OCO’s annual report, chronicles the positive impact that the agency has had on Oswego County during the past year and outlines the services offered by OCO as it continues its mission of building partnerships that improve the quality of life and creating successful communities.

“2009 was a year marked by transition,” said executive director, Diane Cooper-Currier. “A sluggish economy created greater need for OCO’s services. We were challenged to do more, for more people, more efficiently and more effectively. I am proud to say that this agency and its 660 employees have been more than equal to the challenge! OCO served well over 24,000 people in 2009. Since 1966, OCO has taken the lead locally in lifting people out of poverty and equipping them for a rewarding and productive future. Today, OCO’s 50 programs offer help and hope … meeting people where they are and working with them to improve their lives. Our annual report lists our many accomplishments in 2009 ‘on paper,’ but it’s our people – board members, employees, volunteers and consumers – that make it happen!”

OCO’s annual report will be made available to the public.
