Awarded: $213,360
Arnall Community Fund Award

HOPE Community Services is dedicated to programs that promote the quality of life and emotional well-being of behavioral health consumers and individuals with drug and/or alcohol addiction. Opt Up is a voluntary, community-based diversion program with the goals of improving public safety and public order and reducing unnecessary involvement in the legal system for participants. Operating within a harm-reduction philosophy, Opt Up will partner with the Oklahoma City Municipal Court, law enforcement, and Oklahoma County Detention Center to identify repeat, low-level offenders and engage them in treatment services designed to reduce the risk of self-harm and the risk of re-arrest.

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.
