Chester County OIC Plans Ribbon Cutting on MLK Day of Service

Guided by the principles of Martin Luther King, Jr. Chester County OIC will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on January 21st, 2019. Their new headquarters, located at 22 N 5th Avenue in Coatesville, will officially open their doors to the community at 1:30 PM on MLK Day of Service.

“Chester County OIC is proud to return to the city of Coatesville. We are happy to celebrate the organization’s 40th anniversary in the community where we began.” Said Joyce Chester, CEO of the non-profit organization.

Chester County OIC was awarded a HUD grant to purchase the former location of the Coatesville Senior Center this past year and has plans to renovate the space to accommodate all of their programs including GED, English as a Second Language, Certified Nurse Aid Training, and re-entry training for justice-involved young adults ages 18-24 years old. These programs available for Chester County residents are made possible through grants from the Department of Labor and Pennsylvania Department of Education.
