Other ways in which Creveling serves her community include:

Creveling has also played a large part in developing The Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice, a human relations organization dedicated to fighting bias, bigotry and racism and promoting respect and understanding through education and advocacy.[3]

Creveling played a vital role in the creation of Rainbow House, a child abuse prevention program and 24/7 crisis nursery that was the first of its kind. Eventually the Rainbow House had to be closed due to loss of funding but was merged with the Children’s Registry at Hillcrest Medical Center, which then merged with Parents Anonymous, which is now the Parent Child Center. Her early advocacy work with child abuse lead to a greater discourse in the community which paved the way for other programs to flourish in Tulsa.

Community involvement

Through her volunteer efforts, Creveling was offered a position as PR director at the Westin Hotel, where she worked part-time for approximately eight years. The Westin Hotel eventually closed and Creveling was offered a position to head staffing for the National Governors Association meeting held in Tulsa in 1993. After this event, Creveling was offered a job from ONEOK. The company created a position for Creveling in community relations. When the ONEOK Foundation was established in 1997, Creveling was there from the beginning as Executive Director.
