Our Story
Opportunities for Williamson & Burnet Counties (OWBC) was established in 1965 as the area’s official Community Action Agency. We are a private, non-profit corporation governed by elected officials, community leaders and target area representatives. Throughout our history, we have administered a wide range of social service and economic opportunity programs benefiting many. We have an annual operating budget of over $14 million and a staff of more than 200.

Who We Serve
Opportunities serves thousands of people annually in Williamson & Burnet Counties. Working cooperatively with other agencies, we are an advocate for those who might not otherwise have a voice in the community. We are dedicated to providing services to help those in need achieve a better, more productive life.

To empower children, families and seniors to achieve and maintain independence by partnering with area organizations to provide education, nutrition, housing and community support.  

A healthy, educated community in which all people live independently and with dignity.
