Carr & Carr Oklahoma City Attorney Brent Berry spoke to 200 TEEM supporters at the non-profit group’s 25th anniversary celebration. Brent, who is on TEEM’s board of directors, told the story of being introduced to TEEM two years ago when he donated professional clothes to the organization.
“As I unloaded clothing donations, I was awed by the obstacles that people overcome — homelessness, drug addictions, recent incarnation — and how resilient the clients are,” Brent said. “After working side by side with TEEM members who are so passionate about helping their clients, how could I not get on board?”
TEEM has served more than 12,000 Oklahomans since its inception in 1987. At the organization’s 25th anniversary celebration, former students told of how their lives have been improved through education, job training, job placement assistance and social services. The luncheon was also a fundraiser which brought in enough money to help 95 individuals.
Carr & Carr Attorney Susan Carns, Legal Assistant Judy Dunning, Legal Secretary Jane Rogers and Jane’s husband, Tom, attended the May 8 event in downtown Oklahoma City.
Working to end the cycle of poverty, homelessness and employment in Oklahoma City, TEEM offers free classes can improve their education and job skills, while receiving job placement assistance and social services. Each month, approximately 40 students go through the program which prepares them to become independent members of society.
