The $40,000 goes towards the NSO Dental Outreach Program
Neighborhood Services Organization is extremely proud to be awarded an iFund Access to Health Care Grant for $40,000 that will go directly towards the NSO Dental Outreach Program.
President of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, Nancy B. Anthony, presented a check to NSO on Monday, June 26.
“Providing dental care to children is one of the most beneficial preventive efforts that we can do,” said Anthony. “We appreciate NSO’s commitment to this program and their partnership in serving those who might not otherwise have access.”
NSO’s Dental Outreach program met and exceeded all goals set for 2016. Through free dental screenings, preventative procedures and grassroots outreach, NSO’s dental hygienist saw over 10,000 individuals in 2016. That number includes over 4,500 children from Oklahoma public schools.
“NSO is so thankful for our partnership with the Oklahoma City Community Foundation,” said Stacey Ninness, President and CEO of NSO. “Without their support and generosity, we could not continue to offer this free program to so many at-risk Oklahomans. With our numbers steadily rising, the NSO Dental Outreach program is aiming to reach 6,500 children in 2017. We are grateful that OCCF shares in our vision and mission for providing such crucial services here in Oklahoma.”
