This Christmas Season, the Center of Family Love needs support.
Founded in 1981, by members of the Oklahoma Knights of Columbus, the Center of Family Love is a 24-hour care facility that serves intellectually and physically disabled adults age 18 and older. The center provides specialized residential care with innovative educational approaches along with skilled vocational programs in Okarche, Kingfisher and El Reno.
Parishioners throughout the archdiocese are invited to share with residents at the center whether through volunteering, joining the center’s Olympians at Special Olympics, raising money for an adopted friend or by play games, cooking out and spending quality time with residents.
