At our Young Professional Happy Hour on October 26th, our guest speaker is Jamie Caves. Jamie Caves is the president of Sisu Youth Services.
Sisu Youth Services began when a mother of five decided “there are no other options out there” was not an option.
Under Jamie’s leadership as president, Sisu Youth Services offers a safe and inviting overnight shelter. At-risk youth may use laundry, showers, a donation closet, hot meals, a food pantry, and more. Teens aged 15-17 may use the dorm, an overnight shelter.
“When we started, there were just no beds (in Oklahoma City) for unaccompanied minors,” Jamie told The Oklahoman.
The Oklahoma Association of Realtors recognized Jamie with the Community Rock Star Award. The Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy recognized Sisu Youth Services with the 2016 Laura Choate Resilience Award.
Jamie’s work is in alignment with several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Some examples are No Poverty, End Hunger, and Good Health and Well-Being.
The United Nations Association of Oklahoma City is proud to host Jamie Caves at our Young Professional Happy Hour. It is on October 26th at 6:30 PM at The Jones Assembly. See you there! Please RSVP on Facebook.
