Who We Support
Child Advocacy Center Expansion
Award Date: February 17, 2022
Arnall Community Fund Award
Safe Center provides services to residents and visitors to Stephens and Jefferson Counties in Southwest Oklahoma who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. In addition to a crisis line that is staffed by a trained advocate 24/7, they offer crisis intervention services including safety planning, 1:1 advocacy, and referrals to other services. The Child Advocacy Center meets a need in the community for a child-friendly, safe, and neutral location in which law enforcement and Child Protective Service investigators may observe forensic interviews with children who are alleged victims of crimes. At the center the child and non-offending family members receive support, crisis intervention, and resources.
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.
