Your donation to The Frontier helps us report on vulnerable communities across the state and hold the powerful accountable.
This year, I wrote about hospitals in the Oklahoma City metro dumping patients experiencing homelessness to the street or to shelters unequipped to handle their medical needs. I covered the state’s serious decline in drug court enrollment and how, despite millions in new funding, a staffing shortage means Oklahomans with disabilities may still struggle to receive the services they need.

During the election cycle, I analyzed campaign contribution data for Markwayne Mullin’s run for U.S. Senate. And I’ve written about the way state and local government officials have tried to get around federal guidelines for how to spend pandemic relief money.
I was also able to collaborate with another local outlet to write about the ways that expensive electric deposits can be a barrier that can keep people with limited income from finding stable housing.
All of these stories were made possible by donors like you. Investigative journalism requires time and resources — two things that are not always available to reporters in traditional for-profit newsrooms.
Even a donation as small as $5 a month helps us uncover stories that are hidden from the public view and follow complex issues across the state.
Now through Dec. 31, donations to The Frontier will be matched by a collaborative fundraising movement called NewsMatch. We can earn up to $30,000 in matched donations with your gift.
In our small newsroom, those dollars go to directly fuel our reporting. Thank you for helping us continue to shine a light on Oklahoma.
