“Leadership Through Music” Program 2013 with Manta Ray Records!

Have you heard the great news?  Mike Diamond, owner of Manta Ray Records, and Oak Hill House & School are involved in a life-changing program designed for youth in placement and foster care, called “Leadership Through Music”!  This program allows teams to work on 3 singles, submit their best single for judging and win the chance to have the winning single released for public consumers, radio and purchase!  Three of our boys are finishing up their winning single now and we plan to make this program available to more agencies once we finish this pilot!  Thanks Mr. Avey!  Thanks Mr. Mike!  Thanks Mr. Stephan, our Residential Director, who spent the last few months working with the guys to complete their project!

This project taught the guys leadership development, healthy competition, task completion, time management, deadline adherence, social skills, team work, music industry career opportunities, and how to manage themselves in the community among other valuable skills!  Needless to say, their self esteem is through the roof!  A special thanks to all the parents who allowed their children to participate!  Stay tuned for more good news from Oak Hill House & School!

NBC 25’s Reminds Everyone About “Hoopin for Hope” Charity Basketball Tournament’s True Purpose!

Hoopin For Hope To Raise Money for Oak Hill House

Updated: February 13, 2012

CLEAR SPRING, MD – Officials at Oak Hill House in Clear Spring are hoping to purchase the building they operate in. That’s why they’re planning a basketball tournament called “Hoopin For Hope” at St. James School in an effort to raise money.

They say the funds will also be used to move a step closer to purchasing the house and continue their mission to assist troubled youth throughout the state of Maryland.

As a non-profit organization, officials at Oak Hill rely on donations from outside sources.

“The Governor was gracious enough to approve a 1% rate increase, that is not going to cut it for the things that our children needs.  Nobody pays for college applications nor drivers’ education.  One of my kids is taking an ACT test, and we are paying for that.”

The “Hoopin’ for Hope” tournament will be held on March 17th and 18th.  The registration deadline is March 1st.

Status Quo is Not an Option @ Oak Hill House & School!

We had an amazing fiscal year 2011. It’s no small wonder we made it through some of our toughest times to excel into a new level of excellence. We’ve had eight successful discharges between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011! We’ve had models emerge with Anderson Photography donating a photo session. We’ve seen every football game in the NFL thanks to Mr. Brian Lynch, President of Antietam Cable Company in Hagerstown.

We have CopyQuik, DatAchieve, the Pittsburg Pirates, Document Solutions, Wal-Mart on Garland Groh, St. Joseph’s Church and a host of private humanitarians who constantly support our cause. Capital One Bank and multiple local businesses help keep our kids secure, maintaining a wonderful place to grow and thrive. Stay tuned for our Car Wash Fund Raiser on September 11, 2011 at Advanced Auto on Halfway Blvd and Virginia Avenue in Hagerstown and our Yard Sales throughout the Summer.
