Oklahoma Odd Fellows Home at Checotah
Posted December 19, 2014, by Matthew Carroll (mattrc32 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Hello, I represent Teen Challenge of Oklahoma. At the former Odd Fellows Home, now called Freedom House Teen Challenge, we offer a 12 month long residential program to help women 18 and over overcome life-controlling issues such as alcohol/drug/sexual abuse, eating disorders & depression.

Teen Challenge is currently renovating Odd Fellows Building and adjacent wings. We anticipate completing this renovation by the end of 2015 or early 2016. When we complete the renovations we plan to hold a Grand Opening Event in which the community, current residents and former residents are welcome to attend. We would love to contact any former residents so that we can keep them up to date on the progress of the renovations and also invite them to the Grand Opening Event. Teen Challenge is a 501-c3 non-profit and we have received many financial donations along with gifts-in-kind towards the renovations. We are taking donations towards these renovations if any one would like to contribute.

If you are a former resident and would like to receive updates and/or an invitation to see the renovated residence please contact me at mattrc32@gmail.com.

Thank you for your time and have a great day!
