Not all neighborhoods are created equal. In a small southern portion of Oklahoma City, affluence is rare and opportunity for trouble abounds for our youth. Daily, throngs of kids are seen playing in the streets with whatever they can find. They do not have TV's, video games or computers; they have to come outside to be entertained. In most eyes, this seems great... But after a few years, they take to the streets for a different reason and they are never seen again. This area is known for drugs, prostitution and even human trafficking, and our childeren become the victims of it because there is nothing to keep them home.

The nearest park is over a mile away across from a busy street and the park is not supervised. The kids play in a neighborhood street where cars speed over the hill and down the road... It is only a matter of time.

Through out this neighborhood there are vacant lots. Lots sized perfectly for localized block parks and community gardens. The park for the kids to play in a safe zone, and a garden for the block to facilitate community, pride and a source of food when times are tough.

We need your help raising the funds for this project. One block at a time... We moved in to this neighborhood to help, but these types of projects are too much for one family. Many hands make light work, and in this case, many donations make this possible and happen quicker.

The kids need us and we need them.. They are our future, and in many cases, we are their hope.

Thank you.
