To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most,
The club provided a safe and positive environment for over 2,300 children and youth in a primarily low-income, inner-city area of oklahoma city. 90% were eligible for free or reduced lunches at school and 84% came from single-parent or alternative care homes. In addition to providing academic, cultural and recreational enrichment activities, we served healthy snacks after school, and breakfast, lunch and dinner for the kids who were at the club all day in the summer or during school breaks.

There is real live proof that The Boys and Girls Club of Oklahoma County makes a difference in the lives of so many inner city youth. The success stories are numerous and inspiring. I have stood at the door when kids arrived after school and watched them run into the building with giant smiles and great anticipation of the day's events. The Club's staff and volunteers greet them with open arms. The numerous programs, ranging from art, music, sports, leadership, homework tutoring and dealing with life's tough decisions give them something to look forward to every day. I believe that Boy's and Girl's Club is making a difference in the cycle of poverty. I only wish every child had the opportunity to attend.
