Awarded: $141,000
Arnall Community Fund Award

City Care’s programs span the realm of care for those experiencing or at risk of homelessness in Oklahoma City, including after-school tutoring and mentoring, emergency shelter, food, case management, transportation services, and mobile outreach and recovery opportunities to individuals transitioning out of homelessness and into permanent housing. City Care's Housing Navigator at the Diversion Hub works to provide housing services to individuals who are justice-involved. They utilize sober living programs, transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, and housing subsidy programs such as Section 8 to meet the needs of their clients. They work with local landlords and property managers to build relationships and understanding and dispel fallacies about leasing to justice-involved individuals. In addition, the Navigator assists clients as a support network, offering help with security deposits, furnishings for the home, and utility setup.

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.
