Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Learning begins long before a child starts kindergarten. Research shows relationships with adult caregivers build a strong foundation of neural connections in the brain by age 3. Access to high-quality early childhood education is essential to the future success of babies, toddlers, and their families. Children who are not prepared to start school at age 5 are at risk of never catching up, leaving an achievement gap that can persist throughout their entire lives. Foster Care - On average, 7,800 children are in OKDHS custody throughout Oklahoma and are in need of safe, loving homes where they can grow and thrive. Mental Health - Oklahoma has some of the highest rates of Mental Illness and Substance Use Disorders. 46 percent of all Oklahomans are in need of mental health services.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Provide differentiated direct service delivery to young children and their family support systems, while driving excellence in practices that benefit them through partnerships, advocacy, and targeted workforce development.


Expand the reach of high-quality direct service delivery to serve more families.

Invest in practitioner development to secure the ability to fulfill our Mission and Vision with well-qualified talent.

Leverage strategic collaborations and partnerships to enhance the social safety net for families.

Amplify quality impact through advocacy and financial sustainability.


Sunbeam Family Services has built a strong and compelling reputation in the Oklahoma City metro area and within key communities of practice by delivering high-quality services, supported by an innovative partnership model, strong relationships, and a high degree of community responsiveness. Within the legacy contributing to its strong reputation was Sunbeam’s role in establishing the seventh Educare school in the nation, integrating an early childhood program with policy, research, and systematic professional development. Sunbeam’s Strategic Plan represents deliberate choices to leverage its strengths and increase its role in shaping the future in its key fields of practice.

Sunbeam continually aspires to be a recognized leader in early childcare and education, with specialized support for entire family systems. We consistently strive to strengthen the social service ecosystem in our communities. We seek to be advocates of the highest-quality services and ensure the sustainability of our work.
