OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma City church has been sold to a private, tuition-free school that serves the city’s homeless children.

According to records from the Oklahoma County assessor’s office, the Epworth United Methodist Church property was sold to nonprofit Positive Tomorrows for $500,000.

Susan Agel, the school’s principal and CEO, tells The Oklahoman that the sale marks the first step toward expansion of the school, which has been forced to turn children away because of a lack of space.

She says the school’s board of directors doesn’t have any long-term plans for the church property. Agel says a building committee is actively looking at other properties as possible sites for a new school.
