GIVE BACK: A great day for Megan to return to "A Day of Giving" where Megan once spent many hours of being down and out, only to serve those at the Day Center in 2017.
HELP US BREAK BARRIERS
As Oklahoma is the country’s capital to incarcerate females at a rate of over 50% for non-violent drug offenses. Just the Beginning’s mission is to empower justice involved females towards self-sufficiency, esteem and wholeness.
We are a Christ-centered organization that empowers justice-involved females toward self-sufficiency, esteem, and wholeness.
Just the Beginning is an organization whose vision it is to be intentionally fashioned to institute a paradigm shift in the traditional methods for providing assistance to families. We desire to be a bridge between justice-involved females and the support and resources they require for their individual success and that of their families.
Empowerment and advocacy are embedded in our very foundation. We believe that empowerment equips women to envision and have confidence in achievements beyond their difficulties. We act as advocates to their overall success, and to what they have envisioned for themselves, knowing and being certain that our encouragement and support have the potential to positively influence our participants, their families and the surrounding community.
Women involved in the justice system, as well as women desiring diversion are faced with an extreme amount of obstacles in their attempt to live productive in the community. We strive to achieve holistic restoration among our participants and are intent on initiating, cultivating, and catalyzing change, growth, and success in the lives of justice-involved females and their families. Oklahoma has become the country’s capital for incarcerated women with a rate of over 50% incarceration for non-violent drug offenses; these truths have and continue to drive the vision and mission of JTB.
