Getting Involved with OVM

Three Ways

donate money


Local business contributions and donations from great community members like yourself make OVM’s work possible. With this support we are able to bring reconciliation to families and restore justice to relationships.

volunteer support


Assistance comes in many forms, some big and some small, but all important.  Sometimes just encouraging words to someone you know who is involved can go a long way. And of course prayer is welcome.



Volunteering is the ultimate sacrifice and highest reward. It is a chance to give hope to someone looking for a new start. It is more blessed to give than to receive. OVM and the people you impact thank you for your service.

How can I support?

An organization like OVM requires lots of support from the community. You may be thinking you do not have time to give, but please think again. Even simple acts like passing the news on to friends and family, sending a caring email to encourage the staff, and certainly, prayer – all of these can help, no gesture or action is too small.

Please get in touch with us if you would like to offer your support. It’s always much appreciated!


I want to volunteer!

Jesus taught us to feed the hungry and visit the prisoners. Dozens of inmates go weeks, months and years without a visitor. Volunteering to be there for an inmate once a month is so appreciated by the inmate. Contact us to learn how you can find reward through service.
