OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma’s only elementary school meant specifically for homeless children needs your help.

Positive Tomorrows has started a campaign to raise money for a new facility.

“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,” their website says.

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.

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

Other features of the new building include:

  • A large, centrally located commons area
  • Collaboration spaces between classrooms
  • Outdoor learning spaces
  • Gymnasium
  • Storm shelter
  • Kitchen lab for students and families
  • Covered walkway linking to Remerge

The goal is to reach $10.2 million and the campaign has already raised more than $7 million!

Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores will match all campaign donations up to $500,000.
