A Movement of Hope Fueled by Love
City Center champions youth and families in under-resourced communities by creating empowered pathways to relief and restoration.
Founded in 2016 by Jed and Julie Chappell, City Center brings relief and restoration to youth and families living in under-resourced neighborhoods of Oklahoma City.
Jed grew up living a reckless lifestyle as a drug dealer with a criminal history, but grew to escape the cycle of poverty and violence he was exposed to. He later became a pastor committed to restoring lives in Oklahoma City. Julie was once a single mother living on welfare. She’s deeply passionate about giving dignity and support to single mothers and empowering them to become self-sufficient members of the community.
City Center is a safe place that youth and families rely on for vital support. Through powerful partnerships and support from faithful donors, we provide for essential needs including nutrition, hygiene, clothing, and more. Additionally, City Center offers community care initiatives including skills training, educational support, mentorship, and athletic activities for youth.
