•Pier 34 is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) foundation focused on providing the best quality mental health to those in need and unable to afford such care. Dr. Jennifer Cox and her team are dedicated to providing a network of highly qualified and compassionately driven professionals, and connecting those professionals with would-be donors that have the same passion for mental health as we do. Reach out to Pier 34 at 405.562.7970 or get more information at http://www.pier34.org/ 


Gaining assistance is simple:

1. The prospective client applies directly to Pier 34 for an initial 6 sessions. Approval is based on factors such as household income and size.

2. Upon approval, the client chooses a provider from a carefully screened network of mental health professionals who have contracted with the foundation. These providers have been strategically chosen based on various locations around the Metro area to allow for greater ease of access to services for our clients.

3. We feel there are benefits to therapy clients who are also investing in their own care so therefore, the client agrees to a $15 copay paid to the provider at the time of service.

Thirst for a Cause, an annual event started in 2009, raises funds to help with urgent medical expenses for members of Oklahoma's hospitality industry. Through our non-profit Oklahoma Hospitality Foundation, we are able to give something back to the hard-working employees in the hospitality industry. Thirst for a Cause was established to meet the extreme medical needs of persons employed in the restaurant industry in Oklahoma. Funds are limited and will be awarded based on demonstration of need to long-term employees in the restaurant industry. Aid to individuals may only be provided if such individual has no other means to receive needed support, such as from insurance, government assistance programs, etc. Monetary support will not be granted directly to the individual, but to the entity supplying goods and services to the individual, i.e. hospitals, physicians, etc. As you walk around and sample food from some of Oklahoma City's best restaurants, you'll be able to meet and interact with winemakers from all over the wine world. These vintners, who represent some of the best wines available in the country, are coming all the way to Oklahoma to help raise money for our cause. This is THE best wine tasting event of the year! Nowhere else will you be able to meet this many vintners, taste this many great wines, and sample this much amazing food under one roof - right here in OKC!
