The CO-OP mental health diversion program has grown to over 160 participants within a year, and it is expected to continue expanding with the addition of three recovery navigators hired by the Oklahoma County Diversion Hub.

 

  • Remembering the late Robert “Bob” Ravitz 

On January 23, 2024, Robert "Bob" Ravitz, who was the Chief Public Defender of Oklahoma County and a founding board member of CJAC, presented his closing arguments. Following his passing, he was widely praised and celebrated for his achievements. CJAC has the immense responsibility of continuing its work in a manner that pays tribute to Bob’s life, dedication, and contributions.
