Who We Are

Established in 1907, Sunbeam is one of Oklahoma’s longest-serving nonprofits. Sunbeam helps over 4,000 Central Oklahoma children and families learn, grow, and thrive each year through early childcare and education, with specialized wraparound support for entire family systems, including mental health services, and programming for foster families and grandparents raising their grandchildren.  
Through its nationally recognized early childhood program, Sunbeam prepares babies and toddlers to enter kindergarten through full-day, year-round early care and education. Its traditional foster care program provides temporary care and supportive services in a home environment for children. Finally, to provide robust wraparound care, affordable mental health services are available to Sunbeam’s clients and the community. Through the mental health program, Sunbeam provides individual, family, group, and play therapy along with support groups.

That’s why we were voted Metro Family Magazine’s Favorite Nonprofit Organization that Serves Families and Children in 2023!
