Background

As an asset-based community development ministry, it is our belief that broad, biblical solutions and extensive collaborations that are controlled by the community are worth the time they take to cultivate. Holistic development without gentrification, comes through giving stakeholders an opportunity to speak into the change that they often lack. To that end, we waited until we had the support of several pastoral leaders from the community as well as several from resourced neighboring communities before we moved our own family back into the community that we serve to begin building RestoreOKC.

We believe that just as there are many facets to the “cycle of poverty” good community development efforts work to be equally multifaceted and collaborative in their approach. To that end, we have several arms of ministry that intentionally overlap and have their own “board” which seeks to be controlled by a minimum of members from the community. These arms fall broadly into three development categories:

1. Access and alleviation of basic needs [food, supportive housing] -- done mostly through our extensive partnerships.

2. Education and youth development

3. Workforce development

Description
Our city's statistics show that our minority children are "dying on the vine" as they disproportionately lack the same opportunities to build a foundation from which to thrive. The elementary schools available to the Eastside are all considered "failing" with only Parks Elementary earning a status of truly "failed" at the end of 2017. We serve our crowded classrooms and under-supported teachers at Parks Elementary by providing: Classroom Care Teams of 6 adults who adopt a classroom for the school year, a uniform closet and laundry facilities, school supplies, teaching interactive Science Fridays, hosting weekly assemblies, coaching athletics, providing backpacks of food on weekends and holidays to food scarce households (majority of students), healthy snacks 3 times a week, gardens for each classroom, summer kids camp, starting and leading a PTA, after-school programming, and an embedded mental health agency to provide children counseling access.

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program.
By the end of the 2018 school year, Stone of Hope Student Support will have provided all of the "basic needs" for students at our community school, Thelma Parks Elementary.  The vast majority of our students come from households that meet guidelines for USDA's "extreme poverty" definition and have experienced severe trauma.  We felt that it would be impossible to meet educational needs until basic human needs were provided for students.  To that end we will have provided: 
 
1.  Uniforms and basic clothing items like socks and underwear that most students lack as well as laundry facilities.  
2.  Food, snacks, and healthy gardens for take home consumption.  
3.  A full-time mental health provider in the school to deal with trauma as it presents itself and train teachers in discipline that is appropriate for children who qualify as having "Adverse Childhood Experiences."
4.  A job-training and support program available to help our parents end the cycle of poverty at the root.  
 
 
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state.
Our team determined that Stone of Hope Student Support will have been successful when we see a significant shift in the overall health of the school measured in the following areas:  
 
1.  Improved Student Outcomes [current letter grade of "F"] to a C or better.
2.  Retention of qualified teachers
3.  Regular Teacher Trainings and Certifications
4.  50% Parental and Community Involvement [Currently no PTA, we began one with 5 members in 2018.]
5.  Reduction of suspensions to less than 10 per year
 
 
 
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. At the end of each year, our Stone of Hope Student Support Board, comprised of retired teachers and industry professionals, meets with the leadership team at the school to determine how we are meeting our measurable criteria and determine critical areas of intervention or improvement.  
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.
1.  This year every classroom in Thelma Parks Elementary began the year with a full-set of classroom supplies which was the first time anyone can ever recount having supplies.  
2.  Every student received two clean uniforms and a backpack which meant that students came prepared for the first day, though two students lacked shoes of any kind.  
3.  Uniform Closet provided hundreds of uniforms and shoes to get children into clean clothing and into class where they are thriving.  
4.  Athletics has dropped fighting amongst grades 4-6 by more than 50%.  
5.  Classroom care teams were able to test every child in the school to determine their reading level so that we could determine the appropriate starting place for literacy intervention.  Most of our children have improved a grade level since the beginning of the year with consistent literacy intervention from their care team volunteers.  
6.  Children are begging to be part of our Summer Kids Camp this year which was piloted in summer 2017.  
Description
Workday exists to engage and equip the body of Christ to do Spirit-led deeds of justice and mercy primarily on Oklahoma City's Eastside. We do this both because the need is great and because poverty and oppression can be found most anywhere, and God calls us as his children to enter in and to demonstrate his love and goodness. It is our hope and prayer that as volunteers serve with us they will be empowered to replicate the same thing in their own communities.

Description
The Common Collective is the economic development arm of RestoreOKC. The Common Collective exists to provide job training and work experience with the goal of helping people provide for their families and transition to meaningful, lasting careers. [Insert information on the current lack of job opportunities in the community. From original entry: "With an extremely high percentage of single-parent households, median incomes of under $15,000 [with an average of 3 jobs worked), and few economic opportunities, the odds for women and their children to break the cycle of poverty seemed slim at best." ]. The program begins with Work Life, a job training course through The Chalmers Center. Upon completion of the two-month long training, participants are eligible for employment at RestoreOKC or partner organizations. 
 
RestoreOKC's employment opportunities include the following:
 
Two Roosters Cleaning Company: As we prayed and met together with women from our community, the Lord began to birth in us a vision for a job-training program that allowed us to walk alongside women whose life factors made living-wage employment difficult. We wanted to see women set free to be the mothers that they longed to be through salaried-income employment that allowed them to be with their children on the evenings and weekends, begin to dream in community about their future, and learn valuable life skills.

Description
Freedoms Farms and Greenhouses is an economic development arm of RestoreOKC, Inc. working alongside urban youth to create jobs and mentoring opportunities that leverage the resources of the community and the members to bless, serve and create more opportunity for the community.
 
We aim to do this by: 
1. Beginning at the elementary level teaching Pre-K through 6th grade students the basic fundamentals of growing and develop an early relationship with students around maintaining their classroom garden bed [donated by RestoreOKC directly to the elementary schools in partnership with this project].
2. Developing business and entrepreneurial skills as students graduate into mid-high school. Through partnerships with the schools, we will teach leadership, earth science and business during the school day as an "elective" for Freedom Farms employees.
3. Youth employees will get paid a living-wage salary to work after-school and during the summer maintaining the gardens and delivering produce to those in need within the community and selling off the remainder for "profit" for the farm.
4. Graduates of our program will have opportunities through Langston University or Oklahoma State University's Ag-Extension and OKC campus to go on scholarship for high-education opportunities in related fields.
