Award Date: November 17, 2022
Awarded: $100,000
Arnall Community Fund Award

City Care seeks to inspire those willing to look extreme poverty and social injustice in the face and empowers them to do whatever it takes to create change. Through homeless services, permanent supportive housing, and character-based and literacy-focused tutoring, we witness remarkable stories of transformation. Funds will be used to support operations of City Care’s low-barrier overnight shelter which provides temporary shelter for many people involved in the criminal legal system. This grant also includes funding for a supportive housing coordinator to office at and provide services at the Oklahoma County Diversion Hub. This supportive housing coordinator provides services to individuals who are justice-involved and families with multiple needs. They help create a culture of client-centered service, while supporting clients with development of the skills and capacity to care for their families.

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.
