The Oher Foundation

Empowerment That Enriches Lives

Our goal at the Oher Foundation is to provide individuals, both disadvantaged and in need, with empowering opportunities that enrich their lives, and provide a mechanism for higher education and healthy living. It is our goal to address their obstacles and find solutions. The cycle of poverty, addiction, and hopelessness has impacted our communities for too long. I have built my foundation with the mission of serving those suffering from impoverished conditions and facing life’s hardships, and now, it is our job to help them win.

“Though the odds were heavily stacked against me, I had a burning desire deep down to break out of the inner-city and into a world of opportunity. My passion as a professional football player would not be if I were not able to conquer the obstacles that hardened my childhood.” -Michael Oher
