Met Cares Foundation Vision Statement
"Rooted in and inspired by the ancestors of Greenwood, North Tulsa will be a vibrant community where children are thriving and residents have the power to make positive change!"
Who we are
Since 2015, the Met Cares Foundation has been working to drive advocacy, fuel positive change and encourage civic engagement by inspiring community ownership and improving and increasing educational opportunities throughout North Tulsa.
What we do
Transforming outcomes for and with North Tulsa families.
Raising up tomorrow's leaders
In order to open the door to outstanding outcomes for our scholars, Met Cares is committed to linking arms with North Tulsa schools to expand programming. We know that schools cannot address the needs of families, teachers, students, and administration on their own.
We believe we are better together!
MCF is working to support the smooth transition of operations for the 2022-23 school year at GLA to our co-founding partner, Tulsa Public Schools.
Community & Family Engagement
Building collective power for change
The Met Cares Foundation believes that the power of our families and our community is the greatest asset we have.
That is why our engagement efforts ensure that their stories, ideas and concerns are at the center of driving our work.
Together, we believe in our ability to build collective power to lead sustained efforts for change for North Tulsa.
Building Generation Wealth
Growing Greenwood, a homeownership initiative, is a program designed to address the significant wealth gap in the North Tulsa community and support the efforts to restore the Greenwood community back to a state of prominence. Through this homeownership initiative we are providing financial support, as well as education and resources, to first time home buyers to help promote a healthy community.
Our 2019 Summit
In May of 2019, 300 community members came together to take part in our second Building Wakanda summit. Together, we agreed on a list of 20 policy recommendations and called on our city's decision makers to lead the charge in implementing these necessary, community-lead reforms.
