Child Welfare Expansion

Peaceful Family Oklahoma

Award Date: August 17, 2023
Awarded: $60,500
Arnall Community Fund Award

Peaceful Family Oklahoma offers an evidence-based, SAMHSA-created curriculum for children ages 7-12 who have been impacted by a parent’s substance use disorder. The program improves children’s sense of hope, safety behaviors, communication, and helps them understand that their parents’ addiction is not their fault. The organization aims to reach more children by expanding their offerings and focusing on engaging with child welfare partners. Program expansion will include an early childhood program to serve 3-6-year-olds and a teen program.

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.
