OCCK is a not-for-profit, mission-based organization that has been providing services to people with disabilities since 1970. We have regional offices in Salina, Abilene, Beloit, and Concordia. We provide services to people with all types of disabilities so that they can live independently. “Extraordinary People Creating Ordinary Lives”.

Developmental Disability Services:
Day Services – These services are provided typically during working hours either at your place of work, one of our work centers, or at a business based out of your home to increase your independence, integration, inclusion, and personal accomplishment.

Community Living -These services are provided where you live and are designed to assist you to live successfully in the community you have chosen. We provide a wide variety of supports ranging from teaching independent living skills to traditional 24-hour residential services.

The Solution Outreach Center at OCCK Inc. – Connects people with disabilities of all ages to the tools needed to live as full participants in the community. We believe an informed customer working collaboratively with knowledgeable professionals can best identify and select effective technology devices and services. Through information and referral, assessments, computer labs, job accommodations, technical assistance, training sessions, and equipment loans, the Solution Outreach Center enables people to live, learn, work, define their futures, and achieve their dreams.

Independent Connection® – Works with people of all ages and disabilities to locate services and eliminate physical and philosophical barriers so living independently is a reality for all.

CENTER FOR INDEPENDENT LIVING – The term “center for independent living” means a consumer-controlled, community-based, cross-disability, non-residential private non-profit agency that is designed and operated within a local community by individuals with disabilities and provides an array of independent living services. Centers for Independent Living are unique to all other service agencies because the majority of the staff are people with disabilities. We have created a system that is simple, you call and we come to your home. Paper work is simple. You choose how much involvement we have.

North Central Kansas Workforce Solutions – Our Employment Consultants work with people with disabilities to find employment. NCKWS provides employment related services to businesses and individuals at no cost. In addition to helping job seekers with disabilities, NCKWS has developed local Business Advisory Councils (BAC) throughout the nine county region. We currently have active BAC's in Abilene, Beloit, Concordia, and Salina. The role of the council is to create a link between the businesses needing work completed and the sources of supply for labor.
