Community of tiny homes awarded $1.3M for expansion Dec. 13th, 2019
OKLAHOMA CITY – A community of tiny homes serving young people at risk for homelessness can be expanded to more than 20 homes, thanks to a $1.33 million award provided to Pivot Inc.
“Our first three are finished and we have youth in them, and we’re currently permitting for the next three,” said Natalie Fix, communications manager for Pivot. “And then we need to get rolling on more, because we did just receive a grant for funding for 20 and we’re pretty excited about that.”
Pivot is a nonprofit community organization that works with young people, who struggle to meet their basic needs, locate a stable and safe place to live, graduate from high school, find steady employment and create healthy relationships. Formerly known as Youth Services for Oklahoma County, the organization changed its name in February 2018 to Pivot to better reflect its mission of providing a turning point in the lives of the young people it serves.

Development To Help Single Mothers Facing Opposition In North OKC Nov 25th, 2019
OKLAHOMA CITY – A proposed development to help women in need is facing heavy opposition by nearby neighborhoods in the North Oklahoma City – Edmond area. Several neighborhoods have hired an attorney and are circulating a petition to fight the development by the charity Beautiful Restoration.
The development is proposed to go on a piece of property by Danforth and Western Avenue. There are several neighborhoods and high-end homes in the area. Neighbors wouldn’t go on camera, but said they aren’t against the mission, but they just don’t think this type of development belongs in the area.
Beautiful Restoration already owns the land and the former Governor’s Mansion just off Danforth east of Western Avenue. They want to expand their ministry by building 25 tiny homes to help single mothers get back on their feet.
