Oklahoma Lions Official State Projects:

Meadows of Hope Family Foster Care Community:

Started in 1952, the Oklahoma Lions Boys Ranch has been home to more than 1,500 boys between 12-18 years old who were in DHS custody and had not been successful in traditional foster care.

In 2015, due to the changing environment in DHS and other factors, we changed course with the launch of the Paul and Ann Milburn Meadows of Hope at the Oklahoma Lions Boys Ranch.  The Meadows of Hope is a Family Foster Care Community - it will not only allow us to expand our services to reach more youth, it will also allow us to serve younger children and sibling groups. By offering a more permanent setting for these children and reaching them earlier, we can cut down on the number of placements, and continue to work to break the cycle of abuse that passes from one generation to the next.

Oklahoma Lions Eye Bank:

The mission of the Oklahoma Lions Eye Bank (OLEB) is to (1) provide cornea tissue of the highest quality for cornea transplant (2) strictly comply with Medical Standards and FDA guidelines for the recovery, evaluation and distribution of tissue (3) educate and encourage Oklahomans about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation.

Oklahoma Lions Mobile Screening Unit:

The Free Lions Mobile Screening Unit is equipped to screen for some of the most critical health concerns of Oklahomans: glaucoma, diabetes, visual acuity, high blood pressure, cholesterol, basic pulmonary (lung) functioning and bone density problems. The Unit is scheduled annually.

Oklahoma Lions Service Foundation:

Provides assistance and funding for Lions Clubs of Oklahoma charitable and benevolent services.
