OKC Metro Alliance was a 2019 recipient of Impact Oklahoma’s $100,000 grant. The Impact grant enabled them to complete construction on their Women’s First Step kitchen as well as fully furnish the dining room and commercial kitchen. Women’s First Step is a program dedicated to drug and alcohol rehabilitation and sober living.
Prior to receiving the Impact grant, women in their program would have to eat in shifts, due to it only accommodating 18 at a time. They’re now able to eat all together! This has led to a much greater community aspect and learning opportunities such as health and wellness classes, cooking classes, trainings and so much more.
