“I Am OIC” Donna’s Story

“I Am OIC” Donna’s Story

The “I am OIC” program started a few years ago and continues to be a powerful way for our clients, staff, donors and volunteers to express why they are a part of the OIC family. The following is a story submitted by Donna as she recounts her many impressive achievements she attained after graduating from CCOIC:

“My name is Donna Brown and I am a Supervisor at the Chester County Adult Probation, Parole and Pretrial Services in West Chester, PA. I am a 1984 graduate of CC-OIC. I went on to Immaculata University and received my B.S. in Business and Psychology. I worked as an Adult Parole Officer with Chester County for 14 years, working in a variety of programs like Veteran’s Court, Drug Court, and the Women’s Reentry Assessment Program before becoming a Supervisor. I entered into the workforce with Servistar Corporation and I ended up working as a Corrections Officer and then later transitioned to a Correctional Counselor at the Chester County Prison. I also spent time as an Intensive Case Manager for Human Services, Inc. I am a Veteran of the U.S. Army Reserves, serving 6 years with an Honorable Discharge in 1988. I live in Coatesville area with my husband, Joseph. I love CC-OIC because I went from being a CC-OIC graduate to a Board Member!”

If you have been touched by OIC we would love to hear your story on how you are a member of the “I am OIC” family. Please email and include your full name and a paragraph on your experience. If you are comfortable please also attach a picture of yourself, note that testimonials may be included in OIC’s social media program and website.


"I want to thank the board of directors, our dedicated staff, funding sources and partners, and Chester County residents for embracing the Chester County OIC mission."
