Arnall Community Fund Award

The Education and Employment Ministry (TEEM) is dedicated to breaking cycles of incarceration and poverty through education, personal development and work readiness training. TEEM anticipates becoming one of a handful of organizations in the Oklahoma City area to offer a 52-week Batterer’s Intervention Program (BIP) certified by the office of the Oklahoma Attorney General. By statute, BIP is a 52-week group program covering a wide range of topics, including: personal responsibility and the effects of violence on others, power and control, beliefs that promote domestic violence, and tools for healthy relationships. By offering BIP through TEEM, participants will be granted access to existing wrap-around services including TEEM's closing closet, hygiene closet, food pantry, employment services, network of housing providers and transportation services.

The Arnall Community Funds are administered through Oklahoma City Community Foundation (OCCF) and provide grants to nonprofit organizations throughout the state of Oklahoma that are working to improve outcomes for individuals, children and families involved with animal welfare and in the child welfare and criminal justice systems. The OCCF staff will manage the grant administration process and all grantmaking decisions will be made by OCCF Trustees. Learn more about the process.
