Raglow follows the same mantra at Catholic Charities-Oklahoma City as he did at Catholic Charities-Southern Nevada and in the military: “I didn't join this to do things to feel good. I joined to do good.”
Leading the way
Raglow lives in Edmond with his wife Andrea and their three children. He and his family attend St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Edmond.
The decorated Air Force veteran said he feels blessed to take the helm of an organization that has been led by an individual like Tim O'Connor. He said the former executive director left the accredited agency financially sound and in great condition.
“Any assets that I bring will take advantage of the strong foundation that Tim has laid,” he said, and smiled.
“Tim played the music and I get treated like a rock star.”
Raglow said Catholic Charities-Oklahoma City will continue to focus on case management — coming alongside people in need to help them climb out of poverty.
“Many of the services we provide is a way to meet them where they are and travel with them a distance,” he said.
Raglow said he also envisions the agency continuing to partner with various metro organizations to offer effective aid and services.
And more than anything, Raglow said he will be spending time getting to know the communities he serves.
“I seek to learn every day,” he said.
