Welcome to OCEAN, Inc.

Making positive waves of change.

Welcome to our homepage!  We are OCEAN, Inc.  That stands for the Ohio Community Empowerment Advocate Network.  We are a nonprofit service agency based in Toledo, Ohio with many goals and efforts to help the citizens of Toledo and the state at large.  We became incorporated as of May 27th, 2010, and recently filed for 501(c)3 tax exempt status (for more details, please see below or go to the "Donate" tab above).  We are currently seeking funding to operate our programs.  Our current goal is to be in operation with services by August 2012.  It takes time to plan and gather materials and support.

We are under Construction so please bear with us. 

Services

Our services include the Williamson Montessorian School, The Parent Education Program, the Health Center, and the Community Pull Program.  To learn more about our programs we are developing, please click on the "Programs" tab at the top of the page.  We also welcome ideas for new programs! 

Referrals

Our duty as a nonprofit, community service agency is to help everyone!  This means that if we don't provide the service or don't know the answer, we will find it for you.  If we do provide services that you need, we will use our connections to refer you to someone who can help.  If you are a representative from a public or private entity, we can help assist you or your clients.  We take all referrals.

Donate

Any agency cannot survive without funding.  We are governed by our Board of Directors and we recently filed for 501(c)3 tax exempt status.  As per the Internal Revenue Service, we now have the right to operate as a tax exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.  Please donate to us so that we can operate and provide quality services.  We are also in the process of seeking funding from grants, but any bit helps in this day and age!
