Welcome to Central California Community Support!

Hello, I am the Community Support Coordinators for the Army OneSource program in the state of Oklahoma. I’m considered a program integrator. I use information to assist with identifying and validating resources for Soldiers and Families who don't live near an installation. The Army OneSource program is enhancing unit readiness by addressing needs through existing Family programs. Army OneSource addresses the needs of Active Army, Guard and Reserve Soldiers, and Families regardless of where they live by linking support service delivery through all components. It allows Soldiers and Families to access services by phone, the Internet, or by visiting the nearest facility thereby giving them choices that suit their needs and preferences.
