    Urban Mission

     

    • Urban Mission | Back to School Program  (Website)

      • Starts Monday, August 26, 2019 | 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
      • 3737 N. Portland Ave OKC, OK 73112 | 405-946-1556

    The Back-to-School program: The Urban Mission works to ensure that all students are able to participate in school with the proper tools to succeed. Having school supplies and backpacks are luxuries that lower income families cannot afford, thus “free” education takes a back seat to more immediate needs. We provide low-income students with the same school supplies as their peers so that they can start off in school with the same tools as everyone else.

    Families will need ID’s for adults and children, school supply lists, proof of address, and proof of income or referral. This program will run during our Food & Resource hours, from 9:00 AM to 11:45 AM.
