RESOURCES for Faith Leaders

64.9% of Oklahoma County residents identify as religious, which is higher than the U.S. average. It is important for our Collaboration to have meaningful relationships with faith partners and effective strategies for reaching teens in faith communities. Our Collaboration recognizes that we need to develop unique strategies for working with our faith communities and have made efforts to build their capacity to do this work. Below are several resources that we have identified that provide medically accurate information for faith communities.
