Our community members within the ASD spectrum lack access to resources only found in OKC & Tulsa. The library will help fill this gap by partnering with the OK Autism Network at OU Health Sciences Center to provide resources for both people with autism and their caretakers. Additionally, grant funds will be used to improve our Senior Outreach Services at the local Rainbow Assisted Living facility.
