CAP Tulsa is in the strongest position to support children and families when we work collectively with other community organizations. CAP Tulsa’s accomplishments have always been and will continue to be closely tied to the performance of many other organizations working across a broad delivery system that supports young children and their families.
We are proud to partner with the following community agencies, institutions and organizations:
Family & Children's Services
Family & Children’s Services (F&CS) play a crucial role in supporting and engaging families and supporting the behavioral health needs of children and their parents. F&CS provide Family Support Specialists who work directly with families to establish and achieve goals through a Family Success Plan; support child attendance; connect families to community resources; address emergency needs; and build parents’ skills through parenting classes and other engagement activities. F&CS also provide school-based Behavioral Health Specialists to support children, parents, and teachers in working through behavioral and mental health issues.
George Kaiser Family Foundation
The George Kaiser Family Foundation (GKFF) is a key funder of CAP Tulsa, providing private matching dollars for the Oklahoma Early Childhood Program to support high-quality early education and care programs across Tulsa and the State of Oklahoma. In addition to financial support, GKFF also provides consultation on strategy, convenes local and national stakeholders, and forges partnerships to advance early childhood education, social services, civic enhancements, and community health initiatives.
Oklahoma Early Childhood Program
The Oklahoma Early Childhood Program (OECP) was created by the Oklahoma State Legislature in 2006 to improve the quality of early education and expand capacity to serve children from birth through age three statewide. The OECP provides the fiscal structure to align Oklahoma State Department of Education and private resources to promote high-quality standards tied to minimum teacher qualifications, ongoing professional development, and parent supports designed to foster low-income families’ independence and economic success. CAP Tulsa has administered OECP for the State since 2006 and acts as the fiscal agent and a grantee, partnering with other early childhood providers to serve an additional 943 children in high-quality programs across the state.
