50 Years of Service - 50 Years of Relationships

OCCK, Inc.  has spent the last 50 years learning about what rural Kansans care about.

In 1970, a small, passionate group of Kansas parents came together to initiate services in their communities for theirs sons and daughters who at that time had no services.  They founded the Occupational Center of Central Kansas, known today as OCCK, Inc.

That began a 50-year journey of service to the people and communities we care about, quickly expanding services throughout our nine county region.

Fifty Years of Building Relationships

Since opening our doors in 1970, OCCK has been facilitating partnerships and relationships with people with disabilities, families, communities, businesses, social service agencies and more.  We work with people, for people, to keep people in their homes, in their communities, and this helps us help north central Kansas stay strong and vital.  We are proud of our long history, and our long list of partners, and we look forward to cultivating many more partnerships and relationships as we move into our next 50 years.

Solid in our foundation, our resources, our training, our abilities, and our relationships, OCCK is able to do what is necessary when it is necessary.

image description I was referred to Natalie Lervold at OCCK for job placement assistance. Natalie was very professional, kind and understanding of my special needs as I am visually impaired. She made every effort to meet my needs and helped me return to work and be successful. I feel blessed to have worked with Natalie and know she will continue to be a blessing to others that come to her for services. Sue Brown OCCK Customer
image description I am so glad I have OCCK in my life. They have helped me to become better at budgeting and paying my bills so I could become my own payee. I have always wanted to become a welder and they have helped me to enroll in college to make that dream come true. Brad Elson OCCK Customer
image description When I decided to quit driving, I knew I would need a dependable way to get back and forth from dialysis especially being on a budget. I was thrilled when I found that OCCK would be the most reasonable and able to provide this. They are always on time when picking me up and I never have to wait long for my return trips. The drivers are amazing and I enjoy their company while traveling. I can also state that the workers whom work in the office are some of the friendliest and accommodating people I've ever spoken to. They have always ensured that I get where I need to go no matter what. Thank you OCCK. M.S. OCCK Customer
image description OCCK provides an invaluable service to our patients at Tammy Walker Cancer Center. We've been able to rely on OCCK to provide transportation for our north central Kansas patients to and from appointments both safely and on time. During a health crisis there can be many stressors. Transportation can be difficult due to financial burden, distance, health or reliability. OCCK provides their service for any of these reasons at no cost to our patients. They have always been pleasant and flexible in their delivery of services. We appreciate them so much! Stephanie Sherode, LMSW Patient and Family Services, Tammy Walker Cancer Center
image description I have been working with OCCK for many years and know how much they are doing for their clients in central Kansas. From the Infant/Toddler program, home health and then onto the day services and 81 Connection transport. There are so many more programs to help those in need, they (OCCK) are there. Thank you OCCK for being a vital part of the community. Mark Estey Funk Medical & Mobility
