Community And Residents Encourage Service
Owasso CARES was developed in 2010 through the Owasso Strong Neighborhood Initiative. The program is coordinated by Owasso's Neighborhood Coordinator and led by a committee of neighborhood and community leaders. OSNI Owasso CARES is designed to bring residents, volunteers, businesses, faith-based groups, schools, organizations, and city staff together in a private-public partnership to make a positive impact in Owasso.
The group coordinates a Spring and Fall Day of Service to beautify streets, neighborhoods, and assist residents. Owasso's committed volunteers serve to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods and community.
To volunteer in helping make a difference in our neighborhoods and community, please contact Owasso's Neighborhood Coordinator.
