Ribbon-Cutting For 'Tiny Homes' Set By Pivot Agency

Ribbon-Cutting ceremonies and an open house will be held for “three tiny homes” at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3, by Pivot (aTurning Point for Youth). The event will be held at 201 NE 50th St.

Several partners in the project will speak, allowing those in attendance to learn more about the services Pivot offers to young people, “Safe, stable and affordable housing is a significant barrier to the youth we serve,” Jennifer Goodrich,
president of Pivot, said. “Whether they are aging out of the foster care system or are youth living on their own, we recognize that youth need assistance securing a safe and stable place to live.”

Pivot broke ground on the “first tiny homes,” thanks to a generous grant from Impact Oklahoma. The building process, led by a volunteer team with expertise in areas like construction, permitting and design, included the donation of goods and services toward the project.

“Many local companies and professionals in the construction industry are inspired by what we’re trying to accomplish in support of youth living independently, and have graciously donated time and resources to
our project,” said Melanie Anthony, Pivot vice president of development and community engagement.
