OICA is a preventive organization that works with lawmakers, state agencies, and community partners to create policy that benefits Oklahoma’s children and families. We have no oversight over the Department of Human Services or other state agencies. If you are having an issue with DHS, please file a grievance here.
The Time is NOW--Quit the Cuts Rally
Please join us Tuesday, October 24th at 10AM, for a rally, put on by the Oklahoma Behavioral Health Association, as we take our voices to the Oklahoma State Capitol, 4th Floor Rotunda. Our state is facing catastrophic budget cuts that will devastate Mental Health and Addiction Services. We will not just see disastrous loss of necessary services, we will see the loss of life.
Wear GREEN or RED to show your support of
Mental Health and Addiction Services!
The work OICA does underneath the capitol dome is supported by data surrounding children and families in Oklahoma. Our KIDS COUNT Data Center provides up-to-date data on multiple levels–community, county, state and national.
Oklahoma KIDS COUNT is part of the National KIDS COUNT network. Each year, the national KIDS COUNT Data Book provides Oklahoma’s state ranking in four main areas of child well-being compared to the other states.
Each of the four areas –economic well-being, health, education and family/community– are supported by a series of key indicators for each area and provide a snapshot of trends over time. Click the orange box above for current state and National KIDS COUNT Data.
