DID YOU KNOW???
Did you know the Center of Family Love must raise $10,000 annually to meet each of their resident’s needs? The Center of Family Love never charges their residents or their families for the care they provide in the event they cannot afford to live there. Incidentally, 99% of their residents require Medicaid support for their needs.
To assist the the COFL with their mission to provide quality lifetime care to individuals with developmental disabilities, the Knights are embarking on "The Love Challenge". This program aims to challenge Catholic parishes across Oklahoma to adopt one intellectually and physically disabled friend who lives at the Center of Family Love. Parishes are called to designate a Team Champion to assist with The Love Challenge at their local level. Team Champions and parishes will be given marketing and support materials to assist in this challenge.
