Oklahoma Marriage Initiative (OMI): A Process Evaluation. Saturation


The OMI has aspired to saturating society  making services so widely available, and so well known, that throughout Oklahoma they will be accepted and sought by a substantial portion of the population.  The degree of saturation achieved can be considered in terms of the location and availability of existing services, the operation of workshops, the number of participants per region, and the backgrounds of people who participate.

  • Numbers reached.  Based on data collected by the OMI, between 5 and 10 percent of Oklahoma households have participated in an OMI workshop.  A total of about 122,134 individuals had been served by the end of 2007, through 7,078 workshops.
  • Geographic spread.  The OMI has succeeded in achieving a degree of geographic spread that roughly reflects the states urban and rural population densities.  At least to some extent, it has reached nearly every county of the state, judging by the locations of trained workshop leaders and participants.
