Our Story
Opportunities for Williamson & Burnet Counties (OWBC) was established in 1965 as the area’s official Community Action Agency. We are a private, 501(c)(3) 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.

Who We Serve
OWBC serves thousands of individuals and families annually in Williamson and Burnet Counties, providing critical services to community members in need. Our programs meet the needs of community members through all stages of life, ranging from children to senior citizens. In collaboration with other nonprofits and organizations, OWBC is able to blanket the community with the resources they need.

Our agency provides two income-based programs. These include Head Start and Community Services. In addition, we offer a Meals on Wheels program for seniors in need. Although many of our seniors are low-income, this is not a program requirement.


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


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