In a world growing more connected, we are still faced with Oklahomans who are experiencing relational poverty – youth dropping out of high school, young adults aging out of foster care, and individuals re-entering society after prison. To truly deliver lasting change for Oklahoma, hundreds of Neighbor Organizations have committed to Be A Neighbor to those in need.
We are always looking to make our communities stronger. In good times and in difficult ones, it is vital that we take care of our neighbors. We are proud to join with the State of Oklahoma in encouraging you to sign up for Ready. Help. Go.
This allows Oklahomans who want to volunteer an avenue to get ready to volunteer and tell us how you can help. Once the skill sets are known, you will be given opportunities that are available across our state. When the time is right, you will be prepared to volunteer when it is safe to mobilize the right people to the needed jobs. You can sign up at ReadyHelpGo.org.
What is Be A Neighbor?
ReadyHelpGo.org leverages cutting-edge technology to strengthen connections so local communities can help Oklahomans achieve independence.
“Neighbors” are non-profits, faith-groups, and community organizations, like us, that are meeting a local need through mentorship and resources. You are a valuable Neighbor in your community and we want you to join us in this effort at ReadyHelpGo.org, and ask other Neighbors in your community to sign up with us!
Why sign up?
ReadyHelpGo.org gives us access to county-by-county data on statistics where we can make a difference for the future of our communities. It also helps identify resource deserts so the State may work with Neighbors like us to leverage best practices and recruit partnerships to better serve the whole state.
You can make a difference.
“We know this effort will change the future of our fellow Oklahomans for the better,” said Governor Kevin Stitt. “We believe the difference between success and failure for people in need are organizations committed to the people in their communities. We believe when we work together, we create a better future for all of Oklahoma.”
