Charting impact

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

The Vision of Broken Arrow Neighbors is to provide services today, to encourage self-sufficiency tomorrow. We achieve this goal through our Mission of providing basic needs assistance with dignity and compassion to neighbors in need through a cooperative community effort. We believe that the Social Services Safety Net can only be effective with multiple community partners including foundations, United Way, area churches/businesses, local schools/government, individuals and others providing emergency assistance and extended services to those in need.

Four days a week, clients are able to interview with our volunteers to determine their eligibility and level of assistance necessary to continue their progress toward self-sufficiency. Current services include: Food Pantry, Clothing Assistance, Free Weekly Medical Clinic, Free Bi-Weekly Legal Aid Clinic, Direct Financial Assistance (utilities, rent/mortgage, prescriptions and transportation), Free Bi-Monthly Dental Clinic, School Supplies, Holiday Assistance, WIC, SNAP Registration (formerly Food Stamps), and two partnerships with Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma (“Senior Servings” and “Food for Kids”). In the case of direct financial assistance, we use the terminology of "loans," where clients are encouraged to pay off initial loan before future loan consideration. We also take this opportunity to remind them that these public dollars are limited, and by repaying their loan in a timely manner they can help us provide similar assistance to the next client facing similar difficulties.

We are annually serving approximately 4,030 of the estimated 7,117 individuals (according to most recent US census) below the poverty level in the city of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. With the addition of our new facility in 2014, we are hopeful to be able to serve an additional 1,200 or more clients in following years. Current discussions are also under way regarding the logistics of outreaching to those in need (that are) unable to seek our services due to health and other issues such as lack of transportation.

We have many statistics we could report on. For example; last year we kept 50 families from eviction/foreclosure with our rent/mortgage assistance and helped 373 families avoid utility disconnection. And it pleases us to be able to report that some clients receiving direct financial assistance repay their loans in full and "pay it forward" by make donations to the organization. But we believe in looking at the bigger picture. Despite such seemingly insurmountable hurdles as chronic homelessness, generational poverty and food insecurity, we know that by establishing community-wide collaborations we can "tighten the gaps" in the Social Services Safety Net. As we continue to build relationships with community foundations, United Way, and other agencies that offer services BEYOND basic needs, we can better determine the level of success provided to our clients. For now, we continue to help them through their rough patches on the road to self-sufficiency.
