Lions Meadows of Hope

At Lions Meadows of Hope, we unite brothers and sisters in foster care, surround them with a community of hope, and help them grow into caring and productive adults. Lions Meadows of Hope (LMOH), a licensed foster care agency is located at 750033 US-177, south of Perkins. Donated by the Main family, the 160-acre land was given for the purpose of providing a home for families to love and foster children. Their vision was for this land to provide an opportunity for caring individuals to have a place to serve children and, ultimately, provide refuge for foster children. Formerly known as the Oklahoma Lions Boys Ranch until 2015, LMOH is a foster care agency and official project of the Lions Clubs of Oklahoma. Founded in 1938, LMOH has been serving children that need the love of a family for over 83 years. LMOH trains, certifies and provides ongoing support to foster parents in Payne County and surrounding regions. We are proud to contract with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

CEO

Bryan Larison

Bryan Larison, CEO of Lions Meadows of Hope, formerly known as the Oklahoma Lions Boys Ranch (OLBR) until 2015 was hired as program supervisor 22 yrs ago. OLBR served boys from 1938-2015 as a group home model foster care provider. With a MS, LPC degree, Bryan brought experience & understanding to the OLBR, and his insight helped develop a philosophy of “family” and a set of standards for house parents. Bryan began recruiting couples to provide the love of a family for boys from hard places who had experienced abuse and/or neglect. Bryan has served in his current role as Executive Director since 2007, and CEO since 2022. In 2015 Bryan led his BOD in a planning retreat where the Board reviewed the group home model the OLBR followed & decided to transition the OLBR to a model of supporting foster parents who could provide foster families for children, enabling sibling groups to stay together. As a result of Bryan’s vision, the OLBR group home model was transitioned to LMOH.
