Produce Project - The Food Bank’s goal is to provide healthy foods to the hungry. Fresh fruits and vegetables are vital to the development of children and help reduce health problems in adults. Last year, 31% of all food dispersed was fresh produce (6,572,000 lbs). Produce is distributed through our 450 Partners in the 24 counties of eastern Oklahoma, and through feeding programs such as the Mobile Pantry, Sr. Servings, Mobile Eateries, Clinic Pantries and Free Family Farmers’ Markets.
Free Pregnancy Testing - By being able to offer free pregnancy tests, Community Health Connection is able to connect woman to prenatal services as early as possible. This timely initiation of prenatal care is then directly associated with positive pregnancy outcomes. Additionally, it gives Community Health Connection the opportunity to provide family planning services to our patients whether they wish to achieve or prevent a pregnancy. This includes access to a wide variety of contraceptives, such as same day Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives.
TulsaWorks Career Academy - We have rebranded the program to include Career Academy in order to better describe the high level of skills training offered. This training prepares job seekers for in-demand jobs in the community by allowing them to earn industry-recognized credentials and certifications. Last year over 500 individuals who utilized the training programs and placement services offered by TulsaWORKS Career Academy were employed in the community and earned over $5 million in wages.
The Safe Babies Court Teams Project is a systems-change initiative focused on improving how the courts, child welfare agencies, and related organizations work together, share information, and expedite services for young children. The Team monitors the cases of children, aged birth to 3 years, in the custody of the Department of Human Services due to abuse or neglect. The Team continues to exemplify the democratic process all SBCTs seek to achieve. In partnering with DHS and community stakeholders, we have effectively bridged the gap on behalf of the families we serve.
Accessible Discovery Program - Discovery Lab’s Accessible Discovery Program‘s mission is to increase access and participation of underserved children and families in the Tulsa region in informal learning experiences and programming. This program allows students to visit the museum, partake in STEM-based museum classes, and outreach programming at a free or reduced cost. Working with local partners, Accessible Discovery offers underserved families a place to play and learn together, fostering healthy relationships between parents and their children. Partners include the Department of Human Services, Tulsa Housing Authority, New Hope Oklahoma, Women in Recovery, and Tulsa YMCA.
Transitional Living Services for Homeless Youth – The number of homeless youth is at a historic high and growing especially in Oklahoma. We help them leave the streets by providing a safe, stable place to live, personalized case management and supports, and the personal, social, education and employment skills they need to successfully transition to adulthood and stable housing. 92% of the youth who complete the program remain housed in the community for at least six months – a significant predictor of long-term success.
