Saint Simeon’s has been named winner in the Senior category of the Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence (ONE) Awards presented by the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. As winner of the category, Saint Simeon’s, a multi-level senior community in Tulsa, has received a generous $7,500 award from the H. A. and Mary K. Chapman Charitable Trust.
Saint Simeon’s was one of 24 nonprofit finalists at the ONE Awards dinner at Tulsa’s Southern Hills Country Club on April 20. Finalists were divided into eight mission categories – Seniors, Arts and Humanities, Community, Education, Health Services, Self-Sufficiency, Sports and Recreation, and Youth Development. Saint Simeon’s extends its warm congratulations to the overall winner of the Charles Schusterman Award for Excellence, Tulsa’s own Little Lighthouse.
“As a senior living community of choice for Oklahomans, Saint Simeon’s is honored to be awarded Nonprofit of the Year in the Senior category,” said Lindsay Hurley Fick, President and CEO of Saint Simeon’s. “We are thankful to be recognized for fulfilling Saint Simeon’s mission, offering superior care and service to the seniors we are privileged to serve.”
Out of approximately 19,000 nonprofits statewide, only 24 were named finalists.
