BUILDING
SUCCESS

As Oklahoma’s only elementary school specifically for homeless children, we give our students stability and a quality education while their parents get the support they need to create a better life. For over 25 years, we have filled our scrapbooks with countless success stories, but the need continues.
Let’s build a tomorrow with better facilities and space that will allow us to serve even more children. Together we can break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.

THE TIME
IS RIGHT

We turn away more than 100 students a year. We have to serve more kids. A new facility will help us realize this goal by providing the space we truly need.

1 in 10 students in the OKC Public School System is homeless.

THERE ARE NEARLY 9,000
HOMELESS CHILDREN IN
OKLAHOMA CITY ALONE.

THE SITE
PLAN

The 36,000 square-foot elementary school will have classrooms for birth through 5th grade, art and music, special education, a library and outdoor learning spaces. The facility also has a secure entry vestibule, offices, family support services, meeting rooms, and additional rooms for clothing and donations.

Other features include:

  • A large, centrally located commons area
  • Collaboration spaces between classrooms
  • Outdoor learning spaces
  • A  gymnasium
  • A storm shelter
  • A kitchen lab for students and families
  • A covered walkway linking to Remerge

THE SITE
LOCATION

The new building will be adjacent to Northcare’s new campus on General Pershing Boulevard between Villa and May Avenue.

Positive Tomorrow's Proposed Location

Front Entrance

Upon arriving at the school, students are greeted with the schools “core values” on built in benches and multi-colored covered walkways that brighten the building and create excitement for the students. Learning also begins at the front door as students can practice telling time on the 30’ wide sundial or learning the colors of the rainbow.

Outdoor Learning

The “Outdoor Learning” areas provide paved space surrounded by grass and a canopy for shade. Spaces like these allow teachers more flexibility to teach students. The number of games and activities that can be played in this space are only limited by the user’s imagination.
