As Oklahoma's only elementary school specifically for homeless children, we give kids stability and a quality education while their parents get the support they need to create a better life. Over the past 25 years, we have filled our scrapbooks with countless success stories, but the need continues. Together we can break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.

Focus on Home
The purpose of Focus on Home is to help families integrate into a healthy family lifestyle. We work closely with partnering agencies to identify clients in need and on their personal path to improvement. Our clients are families who are currently living in sub-standard environments. Once a client has been referred to our program, we will work with them to create a personalized home environment based on their specific needs. We will work with the community to repurpose gently used furniture and housewares in the creation of the client’s home. Enabled with the help of volunteers, Focus on Home will set up the new home environments for our clients; helping those families put their energy, time and resources into creating a positive future.
