Join us on Thursday, December 14th for our Community Service Project benefiting Positive Tomorrows!

Please bring an unwrapped gift or two to our next meeting! See the Merry Market Wish List below! These donations allow family members to shop for each other during the Holiday season! And, please remember adult gifts as well! Daughters and sons like to be able to shop for their parents as well :)



Positive Tomorrows began in 1989 as a collaborative effort of community organizations that recognized the educational needs of homeless children were not being met. Founding partners included Oklahoma City Public Schools, the State Department of Education, CampFire USA, Neighborhood Services Organization and the YWCA. As an affiliate of the OKC Public Schools System, our purpose was to help homeless families collect needed documentation to enroll their children into a public school. From our founding until 2006, that was what we did. Then, a change in the Federal Grant guidelines caused us to become ineligible for government funding. While many of our students still came from the OKC Public Schools, we were no longer formally affiliated. Today, Positive Tomorrows is a private, tuition-free elementary school meeting the educational and social service needs of homeless children and their families.
