Mission The Oklahoma Caring Foundation's mission is to provide Oklahomans access to preventive health services.

Our signature program, the Oklahoma Caring Van program, was launched through a partnership with the Tulsa City-County Health Department in 1999 and delivers life-saving immunizations to qualifying children through on-site clinics at child care facilities, schools and community locations throughout our state. Currently, we operate eight Caring Vans, two of which are based in Tulsa, two in Oklahoma City, one in Southeast Oklahoma, one in south central Oklahoma, one in Southwest Oklahoma and one that serves tribes statewide.

The Caring Van program is the only mobile immunization initiative in the state that provides vaccines to children of all racial/ethnic backgrounds on a year-round basis. We are different from many other health programs in that we are able to deliver an important health intervention that impacts children's health through a single encounter. Immunizations are the most effective method for protecting children and communities against life-threatening infectious diseases. When a child boards a Caring Van, he or she lacks this critical line of defense. Within minutes, we are able to provide a service that could save their life. Many of our cooperating child care providers, schools and community partners that host Caring Van clinics have come to rely on us to help them keep children healthy.

To date, the Oklahoma Caring Van Program has immunized over 143,000 children with more than 260,000 vaccines statewide.

Future program opportunities will be based on the capacity to impact the health of Oklahomans, particularly children, by access to preventive health services and strong partnerships with other service agencies, businesses and organizations working to improve the health status of Oklahomans.

Improving the health of Oklahomans, one child at a time.

Comments on Financials
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

The expenses paid by the Oklahoma Caring Foundation decreased between 2008 and 2010 by virtue of Health Care Service Corporation making a decision to perform all administrative functions of the Foundation as an in-kind donation. This allows the Foundation to utilize all monetary donations to directly deliver program services. In 2008 and prior, the Foundation paid for some administrative functions and only a portion were donated by Health Care Service Corporation.
