Creating healthy neighborhoods for children.

We are creating pathways for children to break the cycle of poverty through education, community vibrancy and the built environment.


Partnering with Tulsa’s best
affordable builders.


Working with local schools to
expand resources.


Supporting community members, organizations and funders to help kids succeed.

Neighborhoods matter.
Research proves it.

Growing Together is known as a community quarterback. That means we guide and support community members, organizations and funders to create vibrant communities for children. To be a successful neighborhood, children must have the right conditions to live, learn and thrive. We work to change the fundamentals of a neighborhood to benefit kids, making it a more attractive, mixed income neighborhood for families and businesses.
