We take care of accounts receivable, accounts payable, credit card payments, bank reconciliations, audits, payroll, and so much more.

(PW) It’s one of the perks of the job!

Oorah does an incredible amount for so many people, and it’s amazing to see the numbers in black and white.  But you don’t have to be a bookkeeper at Oorah to see that impact – all you have to do is see the smiles on the faces of the families whose lives have been touched deeply by Oorah!

(K4K) What do you like most about your job?
(MW) I see how hard Oorah works to make sure every employee can grow into the best possible position for them. Every manager shows dedication and they’re always there to back you.
