Be The Change, Inc.

Mission:

Be The Change is dedicated to challenging people to connect with our marginalized citizens through service and advocacy; working together to build and sustain healthy communities.

Program Highlights/Accomplishments:

Be The Change facilitates a Coordinated Street Outreach Project in collaboration with a number of provider agencies in the Oklahoma City area. The project operates the city’s only mobile food pantry. This food distribution program is used as a means of engaging IV drug users, sex workers and others who are living and working on the streets of our city. The Outreach Team consists of workers from various homeless service providers, substance abuse providers, mental health providers and other health providers. Program participants are provided with on-site case management, education and referral services. Be The Change is a HIV testing site supported by the Oklahoma State Department of Health and the Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund. We provide free HIV testing as a part of our outreach activities. We also provide volunteer support services to┬ápeople living with HIV in the Oklahoma City Metropolitan area. As a part of both the testing and volunteer program we work with people who are co-infected with Viral Hepatitis or are at risk.
