Meet our Founder


Pastor Dr. Ray A. Owens

Founder of the Met Cares Foundation

In 2014, Pastor Owens convened a meeting of leaders throughout North Tulsa to discuss the undeniable systemic challenges facing our students of color and their families.  It was clear that something must change.  In response, Pastor Owens created the Met Cares Foundation - with the vision of building community power to change what is possible in education, economic development in North Tulsa by dismantling systems of oppression. 

Since it's creation, the Met Cares Foundation has opened the first partnership school in the state of Oklahoma, lead city-wide efforts for sweeping change and become a preeminent force in community organizing within the city of Tulsa.
