"Now the purpose is just to increase their knowledge levels about all things, money management, health living, cooking, child rearing... Anything to help improve their lives,"said Kendra Piasecki, Comanche County OHCE

It doesn't stop with members.  OHCE offers thousands of dollars in college scholarships each year.
