Please Welcome Our New Director
I'm excited to be picking up where Dave left off. My first opportinity to do so will be our annual Thanksgiving day meal basket food drive. Starting October 1st we will be putting together our Thanksgiving Meal baskets. This year we plan to give out 400 baskets to families in Central Oklahoma so we need your help! We will be accepting donations of non perishable food items (green beens, corn, instant mashed potatoes, etc.). We could also use financial donations to go toward purchasing the Turkeys. If you have any questions please call the mission center or email us at email@example.com. The strength of our mission comes from your generosity. Thank you for being faithful to helping meet the needs of others in our area.
We will remain open and committed to serving the community during this difficult time. There will be limited access to the food pantry, so please be patient with us when you come by for assistance.
Mission Norman is a private, publicly supported, non-profit corporation organized and operated to minister to a hurting world, particularly to persons who are homeless, by providing transitional housing, clothing, food, counseling, and other services as a ministry founded upon and carried out for the love of God and His son, Jesus Christ.
We see the brokenness in the world around us as an opportunity to share the Gospel. With so much brokenness around us, we cannot do this alone. We need your help! There are three specific areas we need people like you to step into. First, we need people to pray. We are fighting a spiritual war and we need prayer warriors. Second, we need people to volunteer. We need people to pray with the broken who come, we need people to lead bible studies during the week, we need people to come help unload and hand out the food that is donated. If you have some free time and are willing, we can find a place for you to serve here. Third, we need people to donate. 100% of all donated funds go directly to feeding those in need, providing transitional housing or offering financial assistance those in need. We operate entirely off of the generosity of people like you. Without you, there would be no Mission Norman.
Once a year families can request help with a bill. We pay the last $25 of a utility bill or rent and can offer assistance with medicine or even gas to go to a job interview.
The main way we serve the community is through our food pantry. Those in need are allowed to come visit the pantry once a month and pick out the food that best meets the needs of their family. The amount of food they receive is based on the number of people in their home. In 2018 we served 7,557 households which equals 444,612 meals and we gave out 400 Thanksgiving day baskets to families in need.
Spiritual guidance will be provided to all residents. They will be taught skills such as how to find a job, keep a job, care for themselves, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. There will be onsite staff to ensure the residents’ well-being. The community will be gated and guests must be added to the approved visitor’s list 48 hours before the visit.
To live in the transitional housing facilities, residents must be free of alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and pornography. Residents will receive a background check before being admitted to the facilities. If the residents have been committed of a felony or are found to be a sexual predator, they will not be admitted to the living facilities. Mission Norman will do everything within its power to guarantee a safe living facility.
In 2018 we helped 34 families and their children through our transitional housing program.
If you have questions about the transitional homes, wish to apply for future residency or wish to support the transitional homes, please contact Mission Norman using one of the methods listed at the bottom of this page or you may donate online.
