About ONE

Our Mission

The mission of the Cole Community Impact Organization is to positively impact OKC by providing programs that enables child & adolescent development, adult enrichment and neighborhood empowerment through a Christ-centered style that meets the spiritual, physical, emotional and academic needs of our neighbors.

Statement of Faith

“If you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then your light shall rise in the darkness and your gloom be like the noonday.  The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden like a spring of water, whose waters never fail. Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to live in.”  Isaiah 58:10-12

Develop

We aim to help individuals of all ages grow and expand in knowledge and

cultivate life skills that are essential building blocks for a flourishing life.  Our

friends will have ample opportunities to challenge unhealthy norms and set goals

to transform those behaviors.

Enrich

We aim to enhance our community of friends through embracing individuals

wherever they are in their journey. Encouraging a better awareness of self-

motivation, managing self and identifying innate talents that will propel them

forward.

Empower

We wholeheartedly believe that entire neighborhoods can be transformed when

individual lives are changed and as we come together to tackle systems that

stifles the well-being of our city. Standing alongside our community of friends, we

strengthen our voices as we work at making lasting positive changes for

generations to come.

Outpost

Since 2008 Outpost has been positively impacting Oklahoma City by being a

presence in multi-unit housing complexes. An Outpost cookout gets our foot in

the door with tenants of impoverished neighborhood apartment complexes. On a

weekly basis, we are able to provide a non-threating community event to deepen

relationships and identify community needs.

Sponsor an Outpost cookout for $50 a month.

We currently have two locations: Meridian Ridge and Mt. Vernon.

Hope Academy

Is an after school leadership program for adolescent girls. We are geared to

provide a holistic approach to relationship education and life skills development

that will mature our participants into leaders.

Our focus is to take the culture’s present message of pretty, popular and

powerful, and redefine these concepts. We believe that by investing in girls that

are at-risk in our neighborhood, they will be confident to impact the health and

wellbeing of their families, schools and communities.

Sponsor a girl for $35 per month.

Our currently enrollment for our pilot program is 4. We plan to add 5 girls in the

fall and continue to add 5 until we have reached our max enrollment of 20.
