Mayor Bynum announces RCF partnership
10-08-2019 - Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum announced that the City of Tulsa has partnered with the Reed Community Foundation which will allow RCF to operate out of the Ben Hill Park facility located at 210 E. Latimer Pl, Tulsa, OK 74106. This 11,000 square foot building, which once was an important part of the north Tulsa community, has been vacant for over 10 years. RCF will assume the responsibility, both financially and physically, of taking on major interior renovations. Relocating to this building will allow RCF to offer more community-based programs and to reach more children and families in the community.
