It’s 2024, and we want to come alongside you and support your home even more.

So this year, Oak Life is launching an all new series of online courses for orphanage directors and caregivers, taught by orphanage directors and caregivers.

Each course includes a unique Oak Life Suite of tools, from new apps to example documentation, that will help you put what you learn into practice, and immediately improve the quality of life in your home.

Our team is actively working on developing new tools for you and your team. Here are a couple examples of what’s currently available:
