Created as an after-school reading program in 2003, FaithWorks is quickly becoming a holistic community development agency for the families of southeast Oklahoma City. With the opening of FaithWorks' Community Center in January 2009, FaithWorks' presence of support for families was solidified.
FaithWorks of the Inner City is a nonprofit ministry designed to meet the educational, spiritual, and physical needs of inner city children and their families. This ministry partners with Shidler Elementary school and the Shidler-Wheeler community to establish educational and afterschool programs, teen and adult work programs, and summer camps. The WOW (Word on Wednesday) program, teen Bible study, and Sunday church service are provided to assist our families with their spiritual development. FaithWorks meets the physical needs by providing evening meals to children enrolled in our afterschool programs, housing through onr Bridging the Gap housing program, and through our benevolence fund to assist families in crisis.
