Light of Hope is focused on group support to families and individuals. We are striving to help people see the hope in a more positive future. Recovery requires support. Group encouragement brings a sense of belonging and hope, that we cannot achieve alone.

Community involvement gives us an opportunity to bring awareness and education to recovery. We provide monthly speaker panels, quarterly seminars, community events, and have partnered with Operation Aware to bring drug education into the schools.

Resource Assistance
Individuals & families who are serious and ready for help can find assistance in locating the best resources available to receive that help. We will guide and encourage you through this difficult step. We will pray, encourage and do our best to find the best facilities possible to meet your need.

Support Groups
Encouragement Support Groups assisting families and individuals through the emotional difficulties of addiction and other life situations. We offer prayer, encouragement, and wisdom through scripture, educational topics, and an opportunity to share and derive feedback. Meetings are Mondays at noon, 12:00-1: 00 pm in Catoosa, OK. Tuesday & Thursday evenings, 6:30-8: 00 pm Claremore, OK.

Community Awareness
Our desire is to educate and inform our community. We strive to bring the family unit together, by encouraging positive gatherings through monthly events.

School & Community Education

Addiction's Awful Truths
Monthly panels of speakers, sharing their experiences with the truths of addiction. These are impactful ways to bring truth and awareness through real-life experiences. We are in partnership with the Roger's County D.A.'s office.

Reboot, Rebuild Roger's County
A program designed to assist the community with the difficulties of finding employment, housing, and resource assistance. Designed to give a productive hands-up, to those who have faced difficulty rebuilding their lives after past mistakes. This is a very organized all-day conference, providing speakers, break-out sessions, employment guidance, techniques for improvement, and resources, to guide people towards a road to rebuilding and recovery. We are in partnership and on the Board of this program, through the Roger's County D.A.'s office.

Military Veterans

Jail Ministry
Bringing education and hope to the jail. Literature is in concordance with the Celebrate Recovery Bible.

Light of Hope has a dedicated team of volunteers and professionals, who work alongside us to establish these recovery opportunities.

Our encouragement support groups are a powerful opportunity to begin the healing process for the family or individual. These encouragement groups often open the door of awareness, that there is a need for more professional help.

Light of Hope is able to resource out, and give direction to families or individuals. This brings hope for a positive future.

Through community support and involvement, we have been able to educate, provide, and assist through partnerships.

Light of Hope keeps documentation of attendance and progress through recovery. This is highly confidential.

We track everything on a daily basis, through spreadsheets. Again, this is confidential.

Light of Hope has assisted many families and individuals toward a path to recovery. The evidence in the success is the hope these people now know.

We are striving to bring more awareness to the community so that the community understands the great need.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
