Frequently Asked Questions
On August 31, 2017, WovenLife assumed a new name and a more defined mission to meet the needs of our community. Much of who we are and what we do remains essentially the same. We have put together a list of some frequently asked questions for easy reference.
Do you continue to be a non-profit?
Yes, we operate as a 501(c)3 organization under the same FEIN # 73-0580276.
Are your services and programs different?
No, we will continue to provide the same services and programs as before. We continue to analyze our services and programs on an ongoing basis to ensure we are meeting the needs of our clients and the community.
Did your mission change?
Yes. The language of our previous mission was a direct reflection of the national organization. Our current mission language is a change to better reflect the needs of our community. Our new mission is:
WovenLife is committed to empowering people of all ages and abilities to find hope and independence through compassionate care, education and support.
Why did you decide to change your name?
Through research, we found there was a lack of brand recognition and the benefit of the brand association had depleted over time. This change allows us to focus solely on the local needs of our community while ensuring all of the money we raise stays here locally.
If I receive a request for a donation to Easter Seals in the mail is that coming from you?
No, We are no longer an affiliate of Easter Seals.
Are you in the same building?
Yes, we still remain at 701 NE 13th Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73104. Although we have carried the name Easter Seals Oklahoma, Inc. for many years we are an autonomous organization with our own board of directors. As a local organization we purchased this building in 2001.
Why did you choose the name WovenLife?
WovenLife refers to the diversity of those who use our services, the diversity of the services themselves, and the interesting ways in which they overlap. Young and old, abled and differently abled, we are where their paths cross.
The name speaks to the sophistication of our care, as well as the complexity of the lives of those we are working with.
When so many people with different backgrounds and different futures all come together and you start to zoom out, you see a bigger picture – something beautiful, akin to a woven tapestry.
Why did you choose the colors blue and green?
Blue and green are the colors of life – water and vegetation. They’re cool colors and, in general, are perceived as more positive than their warm counterparts.
When does/did the name of the organization change?
Our name officially changed on Thursday, August 31, 2017.
Who do I write my check to for a donation or payment?
Effective Thursday, August 31, 2017 all checks should be written to WovenLife.
