To help us jump-start our reopening efforts, we are excited to announce that First Merchants Bank has generously provided a $10,000 match gift!

Would you consider making a donation to help us raise $10,000 so we can take full advantage of this matching opportunity? The funds from the match will be used to support our transition to reopen and allow us to purchase much-needed items to prepare our physical space for self-distancing and ongoing operations.

EP, Ryan Miller, 2014, client, direct, h

As we plan to reopen and transition to our new normal, OE’s services will be different for the foreseeable future. In preparation for our return to group programming, OE is preparing its facilities to incorporate social distancing practices, increased cleaning, health checks, and daily temperature screenings.  With more than 350 clients and 100 staff in our buildings, as well as caseworkers, vendors and other partners, this requires substantial adjustments.

Your donation will help provide:

  • Thermometers for daily temperature checks

  • Cleaning supplies for each group to use throughout the day

  • Additional tables to aide in social distancing

  • Plexiglass to protect those who are in close contact with others

  • PPE to protect our staff and clients
