Ariel Moore’s story ranges from homelessness to heroism. Her personal journey has been one of brokenness, homelessness, addiction, incarceration, and finally, redemption. Single moms, prepare to be inspired by this unapologetic story of redemption.
Ariel is the Senior Director for the Center for Social Innovation out of OSU OKC where she gets to help lead people coming out of backgrounds of criminal justice involvement, poverty, trauma, substance abuse, and many other barriers into enriching lives full of purpose and hope through individualized opportunities for education, training, and support.
She began her career working in Human Resources in the Oil and Gas industry and has since then been intentional about developing her ability to compassionately serve others, inspire people into action, and make room for continuous improvement. What she enjoys most is helping the community by way of service work and personally advocating for second chance programs. Beyond that, Ariel believes in braving the time to envision and dream about how things could be and should be if we came together as a community to serve the disadvantaged.
She is a mother, wife, and member of the OKC Community Church that meets in the Tower Theatre in Oklahoma City. Her passion is to live out her God-given calling by helping people renew and rebrand themselves after receiving a second chance at life – in the same way that she was able to.
