Oil Patch Kids is part of a heritage that is uniquely West Texas; a heritage that was built on compassion, generosity, and community fellowship. Thanks to the generous West Texas spirit and the investments of hundreds of supporters, corporations, and volunteers, thousands of young lives have forever been changed.

Since its founding in 1994, Oil Patch Kids has raised over $2 million to support at-risk children right here in the Permian Basin. Some of the children served have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect, while others are considered to be at-risk and may come from single parent and low income families. Oil Patch Kids provides these children with necessities and opportunities to give them hope and a chance for change. These opportunities would not be made possible without the unwavering support of oil, gas, and other local businesses in our community.
