Our Mission: Creating awareness, taking action, and supporting policy to improve the health, safety, and well-being of Oklahoma’s children.

The Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy (OICA) works with policymakers, state agencies, community organizations, and caring citizens to provide a voice and achieve results that improve the health, safety, education, and economic well-being of our state’s children and youth. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, our work relies heavily on contributions from individuals and groups that enable us to inform policy discussions, share real-life stories, mobilize grassroots networks, and provide practical solutions that achieve results.

The work we do to be voices for Oklahoma’s future could not be possible without the generous support from passionate people who believe Oklahoma’s children deserve to be safe, healthy and heard. The work to educate child advocates on how to use their voice includes collecting data on Oklahoma’s children, conducting community forums to begin important conversations about issues critical to Oklahoma’s future, supplying policy makers with key information to better guide the decision-making process and making certain OICA staff have access to the resources and tools necessary to do important work on behalf of Oklahoma’s children and families.  Whether it’s five dollars or $1000, the investments our donors make in the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy are investment in our collective future.

OICA relies on grants and private donations to fund our advocacy. Donations from individuals, groups, and foundations determine the size of the impact we make on the well-being of the children we serve and the policies that affect them. Oklahoma thrives when its children and families thrive. Please help us continue the important work of creating awareness, taking action, and supporting policy on behalf of Oklahoma’s kids! Your contributions are tax-deductible and we can now accept reoccurring donations so you can make monthly contributions too! Thank you for your generous support!

If you would like to give quarterly, please contact OICA’s Operations Director, Lacey Townsend, at ltownsend@oica.org or 405-236-5437.
