While we are moving and morphing this month, we are also continuing to meet and put together some truly revolutionary projects that will renew our community, empower our residents, and grow healthy lives and neighborhoods through small acts of justice done with great love.

We have been finishing promising grants for the Miracle Among The Ruins GardenKitchenPark to continue its transformation. We have been working on grants for a "disruptively innovative" approach to health care that will begin in our underserved, no served, health care areas of north and west Tulsa a new Community Health Worker plan that will be made up of neighborhood residents, filling a niche along with the new OU specialty clinic and new health department primary clinic and existing Morton clinic and others. And we are working on the grant to bring sidewalk and safety to the Cherokee School area here on North Peoria where there are none. And we continue to work with current and potential partners in education, health care, parks, neighborhoods and more and those who drop by the community center for connections and assistance.

Thanks and blessings and more soon, come and see, come and join in, there is always room around The Welcome Table....
