Award Date: December 3, 2019
Awarded: $320,000

Pivot provides programs and services for youth and families that focus on meeting housing and basic needs; education and job assistance; mentoring and life skills development; prevention and intervention services; and therapeutic care. Pivot takes a youth-driven, strengths based, trauma responsive approach to empowering youth to transition into self-sufficient adults.

Oklahoma City was in dire need of a drop-in center and emergency overnight shelter for transition age youth and young adults. Pivot will provide unsheltered and sheltered homeless or runaway youth with wrap-around services (food, shelter, therapeutic care, education, training, employment, healthcare), transitioning them to more a stable living situation.
