Background

After five years of volunteer work in the Oklahoma City public schools, Novo’s founder, Valerie Sherrer, witnessed firsthand the real and acute needs of inner-city children. They experienced a lack of many key resources—food, clothes, money, role models, and love. Many of them were making bad choices and laying the groundwork for failure in life. She believed that it was necessary to intervene drastically and offer them hope, vision, and a sense of purpose for their lives.

In 2003, prior to incorporation, Novo Ministriesʼ founder and a team of passionate individuals conducted after-school programs with the desire to influence the moral and spiritual fiber of the inner city. That fall, about 20 individuals conducted programs at 3 pilot sites. Over the past 8 school years, incorporation, experience, and incredible growth have helped establish the influence and impact of Novo Ministries in Oklahoma City. We have become not only an organization that facilitates quality programming for inner-city children, but also a resource and tool for other churches and organizations working in the inner city.

Impact
In 2016,
-Over 4,000 children were reached through our programs and those of our partners!
-We served over 50 church and organizational partners.
-375 volunteers served in either a program or at our offices.
-Over 11,000 digital downloads of our resources! 
In 2017,
-We want to restart programming at the only Oklahoma City Housing Project that is currently without a Novo program.
-We hope to grow the number of volunteers that were once Novo Bible Club attendees!
-We want to recruit $1 million in financial and in-kind contributions!
-We want to increase the number of Resource Partners that we serve who are already reaching inner-city children. 
Needs

Novo Urban Awareness Training Sessions ($500 a session or $25,000 for full project)

We want to put our training sessions in video format to make them more easily accessible for Novo volunteers and Partners. 

Fund Expansion: Site Coordinators ($7,500 per site)

Right now we have a cap on the number of programs we can run due to a lack of funding. One of the biggest costs towards expansion is bringing on an additional team member to run the program. Without the right leader, we can't start new programs! 

Healthy Snacks (in-kind, gift cards, or any amount up to $5,000 for each site)

As part of an internal healthy kids initiative, we are seeking to improve our snacks and ensure compliance with best practices and dietary recommendations. (A detailed plan for these changes is available.) Taking these steps towards the health of the children enrolled in our programs will result in a projected tripling our snack expenditures; funding is needed to make the changes proposed.

Office Supplies (in-kind, gift cards, or any amount up to $5,000 total)

 Page protectors, white 3-ring binders, post-it notes, paper clips, and other small office supplies are needed as well as funding for printing supplies and paper. Bottled water is also a need for our volunteer and children's programs.
 

Craft and School Supplies (in-kind, gift cards, or any amount up to $5,000 total)

Glue sticks, markers, crayons, glue, popsicle sticks, and construction paper. Masking tape and balloons are also big needs. Occasionally rugs, blankets, flashlights, lightweight floor lamps, and other miscellaneous supplies are needed.
 
 
CEO/Executive Director Statement

At Novo, we encounter heartache, despair, and purposelessness everyday. We see broken families, shattered dreams, and hopeless lives. There are days when we look at the challenges and devastation that characterize so many of these communities and change seems impossible. Their realities seem beyond our ability to change. 

But these realities can be changed. A difference can be made. We can introduce these children to faithful, caring mentors who will love them, teach them, and guide them in realizing their full potential and achieving the purpose for which they were created.

There are hundreds and thousands of inner-city boys and girls around Oklahoma City whose lives have been touched by those who embrace the mission and vision of Novo - our volunteers, staff, and partners. We are connecting the faith community to inner-city children and facilitating training for committed, passionate individuals to develop purposeful relationships with these children. They learn to invest in the hearts, minds, and lives of inner-city children and their families, introducing boys and girls to life-changing teaching and modeling a life that reflects hope, love, and a sense of purpose. 

This was our vision when this work started in the fall of 2003, when we incorporated in 2005, and today as we have mobilized over 300 volunteers to impact thousands of children in our city. Thank you for caring enough about these boys and girls that you would choose to get involved in Novo. 

We need you. They need you.

Hope for the boys and girls,

Jay and Valerie Sherrer

Executive Director and Founder, Novo Ministries

Board Chair Statement

As both a former principal of a local elementary school and the chairman of the Novo Ministries Board of Directors, I want to strongly encourage you to consider supporting this fine organization. Novo Ministries is a local, non-profit organization committed to making a difference in the lives of inner-city boys and girls. Our mission is accomplished through connecting caring, passionate individuals with at-risk, under-served children through weekly after-school programs.

I have known and worked with Valerie Sherrer, Founder, for more than 11 years. She is an amazing person who has demonstrated a willingness to do whatever it takes to impact these needy children. Valerie and Jay are both dedicated to mobilizing like-minded individuals to provide healthy, positive role models and much needed mentoring.

Weekly, a Novo Ministries' team came to my school, Tulakes Elementary, and led an after-school program during my tenure there. Frequently, more than 100 children were in attendance. Many of the children who came to the program had challenges in their life and home including everything from sibling gang involvement, substance abuse, academic struggles, criminal activity, poor housing options, teen pregnancy, to incarcerated parents and more. When I served as principal, I was always looking for programs that promoted healthy behavior, positive character development, and good life choices. Novo Ministries gave these children the opportunity to interact with adults who love them and mentor them to success in life.

I hear the statistics and know the facts concerning our inner-city communities. I saw the realities and the product of this culture every day at my school. We need the support and resources necessary to counteract the negative influences and positively impact our inner city. I would like to ask you to consider supporting this vital work here in the inner city of Oklahoma City.

Sincerely,

Lee Roland

Former Principal, Tulakes Elementary

Chairman, Novo Ministries' Board of Directors

Description

 

All of our training, live and on-line, is designed to equip individuals to work effectively with inner-city children. We equip mentors to effectively reach inner-city children, families and communities through our Novo Urban Awareness Training and Novo Volunteer Training.
Our Novo Volunteer Training was made available on-line through a generous anonymous grant and fabulous production work by Lampstand Media. There are 6 modules within this training - the first is available here: http://www.novoministries.org/module-1-orientation/ Videos are on the left side, downloaded notes for each video are on the right side of your screen. We are seeking funding to produce our Novo Urban Awareness Training on video.
 
Program Connection to Key Organizational Goals:
• To educate the non-urban community about the inner city.
• To train faithful, caring individuals to impact the lives of under-resourced and at-risk children.
 
Current Needs Include:
Novo Urban Awareness Training Video Production ($30,000)
During the summer of 2013 we produced our Novo Volunteer Training on video. The warm reception this on-line training has received has only increased our desire to put our other training offerings on video as well. Currently the NUAT is a 6+ hour training offered on a Saturday. This training covers the realities of the inner city, effective ideas and techniques for working with inner-city children, and other pertinent tips for reaching inner-city children.

Description

 

We have established partnerships with local churches and other nonprofit organizations in order to maximize our reach and impact across the city. There are two types of partnerships —“Program Partner” and “Resource Partner.” We now have more than 50 church and organizational partners.
 
Program Partners are churches and organizations that have chosen to adopt specific inner-city communities and reach them through a Novo program. All Program Partners receive training, curriculum, uniforms, supplies, snacks, resources, and more at no charge. This partnership allows organizations to mobilize volunteers to reach communities that they could not have reached otherwise due to a lack of funding, experience, and / or knowledge.
 
The Resource Partner relationship allows us to “resource” churches and organizations that already have their own existing programs or plans. Many of these partners need additional training to equip their workers who serve in church programs and find themselves working with inner-city kids. Others need curriculum for existing programs – such as a Whiz Kids program or a Wednesday night program. We support all of our partners at no cost to them.
 
Program Connection to Key Organizational Goals:
• To educate the non-urban community about the inner city.
• To train faithful, caring individuals to impact the lives of under-resourced and at-risk children.
• To mentor inner-city children, providing positive role models and offering guidance.
• To impact the community through program facilitation and beneficial partnerships.
• To empower inner-city children to be productive, contributing adults.

Description
We facilitate after-school and evening mentoring programs in at-risk communities all around the greater Oklahoma City area. Our programming creates an environment that presents positive values to youth from ages 4 to 12, connecting them with healthy role models, to instill in them a moral lifestyle and to train them to serve others. Our sites include public elementary schools, community centers, housing projects, and apartment complexes—all located less than 2,000 feet from where the children live or attend school. Every day, inner-city children face negative influences and deal with incredible challenges. Our goal is to set a good example for these children and encourage them to make right choices. Our program evaluation and outcomes measurement processes help us stay on track and help us quantify our impact.
