Arnall Community Fund Award
Northern Oklahoma Youth Services (NOYS) is a community-based youth service program that exists to strengthen families and decrease the occurrence of child abuse and neglect, family violence, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, juvenile delinquency and other negative behaviors and conditions that limit a youth’s potential to grow into a healthy, responsible self-sufficient adult.
The Family Resource Program serves families with a wide variety of stressors, including teen parenting, child welfare system involvement, economic instability, substance abuse issues, medical challenges, grandparents raising grandkids, and military service. Services include in-home and center-based educational sessions. The session includes information on bonding and attachment, milestones and typical development, language skills, motor skills, social-emotional skills, cognitive skills, nutrition, positive discipline, and resources in their county (employment, housing, education, counseling, etc.). Families are encouraged to get proper prenatal and postnatal care, up-to-date immunizations, and to use the various resources available in Kay County. Families can enroll and receive services for anytime between pregnancy and kindergarten.
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.
