At OKRA Charity Saloon, witness the strength of Houston’s community and how these organizations make our city a healthier, happier, and more creative place to live. For each drink or food item purchased, guests receive one voting ticket that they may cast for one of four local 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations. The charities must be based in the Greater Houston Area. The charity with the most votes at the end of the month receives the next month’s proceeds. We encourage you to take the time to learn more about the organizations that speak to you and find ways to get involved.
If you know someone or are part of an organization that would like to participate at OKRA, apply here.

COCI’s No More Victims’ vision is for children of incarcerated parents to “Get Educated, Not Incarcerated”. Since NMV was first introduced into Houston schools two decades ago, nearly 100% of every senior class has graduated and tracking indicates that very few wind up incarcerated as adults.
