Be The OAK Foundation is a newly formed organization inspired by recent fathering experiences of a nuclear family (father of 3, marrying a mother of 3, with 1 shared child) coming together with GrandMa & Step-GrandPa to help a grandchild find her way back to the right track & stay on it.
The Mission of BE The OAK Foundation Inc. is to unlock the potential of all fathers (starting with Orange County & Palm Beach County, FL). We are committed to helping them build and sustain healthy relationships with their children by helping to create Positive Life Long Memories for them to share.
Our vision is to Organize an Army for our Kids by enlisting the fathers OF Orange County who are committed to improving the quality of life for themselves and for their children. Be the Oak Foundation INC seeks to join forces with fathers by providing opportunities and the use of resources that have traditionally been underutilized in our community. It is our wish that through our services and programs, fathers will acquire the parenting skills and community support that is sometimes necessary to BE THE OAK for their children, BE THE OAK for their communities and eventually BE THE OAK for the world.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our target audience is any father (age, race or ethnicity) open to strengthening their parenting skills and improving relationships with their children and families.
- From expecting fathers, to mature grandfathers
- From paternal fathers to adopted fathers to mentoring fathers
We will start with greatest need - by reaching out to fathers in prison and fathers with children touching juvenile justice

Feel free to suggest colors, symbols, imagery...
The goal is that "BeTheOAK" (a challenge & command... an ACTION!) be communicated. Our Tagline is: "Just as an OAK Tree is viewed as a symbol of strength… So should a father who is firmly rooted in the lives of his children."
Aside: This our first project as we explore 99designs as a potential long-term partner for all our graphic needs (BeTheOAK is a client).
