About Us


Our purpose is to foster independence and empowerment within individuals, employees, institutions, and communities we serve.


To assist individuals with low-income and/or disabilities to fulfill their desire to live a productive and self-determined life in the community.


We are grounded in providing effective support to individuals living in institutions and/or communities and work toward fulfilling their visions to live more independently in a community-based setting.


At OCS, we are guided by a set of core values that define who we are and how we conduct ourselves in every aspect of our work. These values serve as the foundation of our culture, driving our decisions and actions to create a positive and inclusive environment.

Integrity: We uphold the highest standards of integrity in all our interactions. We are committed to honesty, transparency, and ethical behavior. Trust is the cornerstone of our relationships, and we strive to maintain it through unwavering integrity. 

Diversity and Respect: We celebrate and embrace diversity in all its forms. We believe that a variety of perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences enrich our community. We treat everyone with dignity and respect, fostering an inclusive environment where individuals feel valued and heard. 

Accountability and Responsiveness: We take ownership of our commitments and responsibilities. Accountability is not just a buzzword for us; it is a fundamental principle that guides our actions. We are responsive to the needs of our stakeholders (employees, clients, and partners), consistently delivering on our promises with a sense of urgency and diligence. 

Person-Centered: Our focus is on the individual. We recognize and honor the uniqueness of each person, whether they are a team member, client, or partner. We tailor our approaches to be person-centered, ensuring that the diverse needs and aspirations of individuals are at the forefront of our decision-making and service delivery.

As a united team, we live out these values daily, creating an environment where everyone can thrive. By embodying integrity, embracing diversity, holding ourselves accountable, and putting people at the center of our efforts, we build a stronger, more compassionate, and impactful organization.

History of OCS

Crossing over the rivers of Africa into the United States of America and through the amazing diversity visa lottery opportunity, two young Cameroonians came to the United States of American in search of a greener pasture. The founders took this journey that led them in providing shelter to a homeless man in their home, which is uncommon in the United States but a normal gesture from where they came from. The founders of OCS believe “one hand cannot tie a bundle”, and we work together to support our community in changing lives one at a time.

In October 2013, OCS obtained a certification to offer Relocation Services (RSC/MHM) and initiated client relocations in May 2014. The range of services provided by OCS expanded over the years, encompassing the acquisition of the 245D Home and Community Based Services license (HCBS) in 2015, additional Housing-related services in 2016, and the introduction of business consulting services in 2023. While rooted in the Twin Cities metro area, OCS extends its services to clients across the entirety of Minnesota.
