About Mission of Hope and Stillwater Community Health Center

Mission of Hope was founded in 1988 with the help of Mary Ruth Anderson at a time when Stillwater was experiencing great need to assist the growing homeless population. The Mission’s current site was donated by Harry and Billie Wyatt in 1992 and remodeled with the cooperation of local churches and community organizations. The mission of this organization is to assist homeless individuals and families in becoming self-sufficient to acquire permanent housing: “providing the homeless a hope for a better future.”

The Stillwater Community Health Center was started in 1993. The mission of the Stillwater Community Health Center is to promote a healthy community by providing compassionate healthcare to the medically under-served in Payne County.  Through volunteer physicians, the clinic provides doctor appointments on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Some of the services include: help with diabetes, thyroid problems, high blood pressure, allergies, and skin rashes. The Community Health Center also provides prescription medications, through an on-site pharmacy.  This is all accomplished through funding from the local community.
