Our History


Our Kids First was founded in 1987. It was established as an assistance program for inner city youth that provided tutoring, counseling, training and guidance.


OKF gained its 501 (c) 3 status in 1991. Since its inception, OKF has continued to serve the community through a variety of educational programs, such as an after school and  summer programming.

The program name in itself describes our sole purpose for existence--to focus on the needs of young people first.
