About Oak Tree Corner

Oak Tree Corner is a nonprofit organization based in Dayton, Ohio that provides grief support groups for children ages three through 18 who have had someone important in their life die, including a parent, sibling, close relative, friend, or caregiver. Oak Tree Corner provides year-round support groups in three counties surrounding Dayton, and is free of charge for all families. Groups are led by trained volunteers, most of whom have experienced loss at an early age in their lives as well. Since its founding in 1996, Oak Tree Corner has served more than 1,000 children and their families. 

During group meetings, children and teens are offered a free meal and then engage in activities including, “games, memory projects, puppets, music, baking, drama, crafts and often, sharing stories. After group, a short closing circle unites the entire group,” says Oak Tree Corner.  A separate group is also available for parents and caregivers who care for children and teens in grief. 

Solar Ambassadors Bringing Solar to Oak Tree Corner

In 2021, the Solar Ambassador Fellows at the University of Dayton helped bring solar to Oak Tree Corner! Lauren Bower, a Dayton Solar Ambassador says, “It’s really cool that we were able to partner with Oak Tree Corner because of all of the good that comes out of the project. Not only is the energy they use now cleaner, but the nonprofit will also now have more funds available for their mission.”
Oak Tree Corner is the third nonprofit that the University of Dayton Solar Ambassadors have solarized, the previous two nonprofits include the Mission of Mary Cooperative and East End Community Services. Patrick Hoody, Dayton Solar Ambassador Team Lead says, “Working with Oak Tree Corner has allowed me to make real connections of the impact that helping nonprofits go solar can have. It feels amazing to be able to work towards an awesome achievement of going solar with people who care so much about the community I live in.”

How Oak Tree Corner Will Utilize Their Solar Savings 

Oak Tree Corner’s main motivation for going solar were environmental concerns and to reduce their environmental footprint. 

Oak Tree Corner will save more than $28,500 off the cost of electricity by going solar with RE-volv over the life of the system. Oak Tree Corner plans to use this cost savings to host additional family meals and picnics for the families they serve.
