GRANTEES

The first Innovation Cohort began in January 2021 and includes:

 

Cedar Ridge
Behavioral Hospital provides inpatient psychiatric services for children/adolescents and adults/senior adults, each in separate facilities and both located in Oklahoma County.

 

Queer youth struggle in the state of Oklahoma due to the stigma that exists in our culture. See what The Nest at Cedar Ridge is doing about that.

 

Freedom City
Strives to remove barriers and provide support for students and families in Oklahoma City to reach their potential through mentoring, after-school and tutoring programs.

 

Children in Northeast Oklahoma City face incredible challenges every single day. See what Freedom City is doing to combat those challenges.

 

ONE
Strives to positively impact Northwest OKC with a holistic approach to child and adolescent development, adult enrichment, and neighborhood empowerment.

 

At One OKC, everything they do is about partnering with and supporting their neighbors. Learn more through this short video.

 

Pivot Inc.
Works with youth (ages 12-24) in Oklahoma City and surrounding areas who have overwhelming barriers with no resources to overcome them. They exist to be a force for good, turning young lives around and setting their course for an empowered future.

 

Youth homelessness is a growing issue due to kids struggling to find their role in today’s society. But Pivot is here to help; learn more.

 

Sisu
Youth Services provides emergency shelter, case management and wrap-around services to homeless and at-risk youth ages 15-24. Their goal is to eliminate homelessness in OKC.

 

In this city’s most recent one-night count of the homeless population, we found 90 unaccompanied youth sleeping in places not meant for habitation. While startling, Sisu is making a difference.

 

YWCA OKC
Exists to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. They provide exemplary domestic violence and sexual assault services, and currently operate the only certified emergency domestic violence shelter in Oklahoma County.

 

At the YWCA, they provide care and hope to victims who have experienced sexual violence, domestic violence, and stalking. Learn more about their critical community work.
