2016

Our Biggest Year Yet

Our team grew stronger.

Our supporters knocked it out of the park.

Our social enterprise blossomed.

Our Team

Our team grew in many ways this year. Most notably, we devoted dedicated resources to the culinary and wellness activities across our programs. This underscores our commitment to the health and wellness of our Warriors and positions us for new program development and growth in our social enterprises.

We promoted exceptional talent to key program leader roles, ensuring that our programming remains energized and fresh.

And we enhanced development efforts and core mission support to ensure that we have the organizational foundation to meet our goals for the future.

Our Supporters

From sponsor partners to donors to an outstanding group of volunteers, our supporters did amazing things for us all year.

550 WARRIORS, FAMILY MEMBERS, AND FRIENDS GATHERED AT OUR NIGHT FOR OPPORTUNITIES GALA.

765 DONORS SUPPORTED 355 PLAYERS ON THE DIAMOND IN OUR ANNUAL OK CLASSIC SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT.

65  INDIVIDUALS PARTICIPATED IN OUR FIRST EVER WARRIOR MILE.

More than 200 donors contributed to our Giving Tuesday campaign, including 62 new supporters.

And our great friend Kate and her neighborhood pals turned the heat up at the hot cider stand and raised more than $3,500 for Opportunity Knocks.

All this reminds us that we are a community organization in every sense of the word.

Our Social Enterprises

From pickles to produce, many things were coming up green in our social enterprise operations.

Knockout Pickles, in its second year, gathered steam by expanding distribution into 5 retail and restaurant outlets and employing its first two paid Warriors.

Warrior Catering offered local catering services for private events and employed four different Warriors in its operations.

And in April, the OK Farm was launched through a collaboration with the Reuse Depot as a way to give the Warriors a role in the sustainable food movement.

Produce from the OK Farm was used to meet cucumber supply for knockout pickles,

was incorporated within Opportunity Knocks programming (cooking classes, lunches and meals),

and excess produce was harvested and sold at local farmer’s markets.
