Oak Grove CEO Tammy Wilson and site director Randy Wilson are not new to the desert. Their organization has been providing services for struggling families and children in the Coachella Valley for over five years. In 2015, Oak Grove moved into its current Bermuda Dunes location.A few weeks ago, Oak Grove in the Desert joined the Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce, in hopes of hiring more local staff and expanding its services in the valley.Before opening its desert location, the organization had coordinated most of its local services from Wilson’s kitchen. In November of 2015, the organization began leasing an office space on Country Club Drive in Bermuda Dunes.”With having the location, we’ve deliberately been trying to hire more people that are therapists, behavioral specialists and parent partners that live in the desert,” Wilson said.
