OKLAHOMA CAPITOL -- Volunteers from across the state are forming Regional Resource Teams to help military families. These teams will provide resources and community connections to assist veterans, service members and their families’ access services within their region, as well as create new initiatives and partnerships.
The Oklahoma National Guard, Army OneSource, and the Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives (OFBCI) are recruiting individuals from the community and in particular from faith congregations who have a passion and interest in assisting these individuals and their families.
“Out of the nine states with soldiers returning from this deployment, more than 3,300 are returning to Oklahoma,” said Robin Jones, Director of the OFBCI. “That’s nearly as many returning to Oklahoma as the other eight states combined. Our citizens have the privilege and responsibility to help honor and serve these returning soldiers and their families. These Regional Resource Teams offer a great opportunity to help in a community setting,” Jones added.
