We empower community partners to create lasting, transformative change through strategic investments and innovative partnerships.

Areas of Focus

Child Welfare

The Child Welfare Initiative is to support children, youth and families involved in Oklahoma’s child welfare and juvenile justice systems through strategic investment and transformative change.

Criminal Justice Reform

The Arnall Family Foundation’s Criminal Justice Reform initiative is aimed at reducing over-incarceration through the use of data-driven, evidence-informed practices and policies.

COVID-19 Child Welfare Rapid Response Fund

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Arnall Family Foundation has awarded nearly $300,000 to 27 organizations throughout Oklahoma that serve children, youth and families impacted by the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Grants were awarded to provide technology to keep families connected, to support kinship placements and to provide informal care options to foster families.

OKC Black Justice Fund

The OKC Black Justice Fund sought to advance racial equity and justice in Oklahoma City. It provided financial support to Black-led organizations, along with others who can support the mission. The fund, located at the Communities Foundation of Oklahoma, provided grants to organizations in four strategic areas.

Diversion Hub

The Diversion Hub is a comprehensive, one-stop network dedicated to assisting justice-involved individuals in Oklahoma City by harnessing the power of multiple support agencies through combined and synchronized services. Their goal is to provide life-stabilizing resources while empowering individuals to reduce their encounters with the criminal justice system through enhanced support services under one roof.

OKC Tax Help

OKC Tax Help, a campaign by the Arnall Family Foundation, is an accessible network of free tax resources that work to get you the refund you are owed. The EITC has helped increase employment and reduce poverty by aiming to increase federal claimants in Oklahoma City. OKC Tax Help, a multilingual campaign, is getting much needed resources to our hardworking neighbors and serving as an economic driver for our community.

Climb Ride Program

Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA), in partnership with EMBARK and the Oklahoma Transit Association, developed a pilot program to increase parent-child reunification in Oklahoma County through innovative transportation delivery. Participants receive an individualized transportation plan that will accommodate child visitation, scheduled classes and therapy sessions, and court hearings.
