They come to us at all hours, escorted by policemen or Department of Human Service Workers. They are tall, short, innocent and street wise. They are different ages, different sizes and different colors. They are scared, angry and crying. Here at the shelter, there are many questions we cannot answer, but we do what we do very well and that is to provide shelter for our displaced children. It is simple and as complex as that.
To empower and advocate for children, adolescents and famillies at risk in South Central Oklahoma through home, agency and school-based programs offering temporary shelter for children and adolescents, integrated behavioral health outpatient counseling, and prevention and intervention services.
We served 444 youth, families and schools this year. Our goal is to reach all our adolescence by continually improving our services that lead to better results that lead to generations of positive impact. We will continue to surround our young people with a professional staff that is committed to making CCSFSC services best practices. This will keep us adapting, improving and expanding our programs, so we will continue the vision of our founders by meeting the needs of young people and their families.
