Cheryl Bauman, Founder

pic_cheryl3What a pleasure it is to greet you and welcome you to CPO! It is hard to believe that CPO is now in its 31st year! Never, in my wildest dreams for this ministry, did I envision that it would become this large or this comprehensive.

Our mission is to help the young women do what they feel is best for their babies and to help them become all that God created them to be. My personal goal is to get up each morning and make myself available for His calling that day. Truly, His mercies are new every morning for each one of us!


Cheryl Bauman is the Founder and has been the Executive Director of Crisis Pregnancy Outreach since its inception in 1983. For 31 years, Cheryl has guided and directed CPO as it has continually grown to meet the ever-increasing needs of young women and their children.

Cheryl has received numerous awards and recognition for her loving and compassionate service. Mrs. Bauman was presented with the Pinnacle Award by Tulsa’s Mayor Bill LaFortune. This award is given “for significant contribution toward improving the status of women in the Tulsa community.”

hpim0068In 2002, Cheryl went to Washington D.C. to receive The Congressional Angels in Adoption Award, “in recognition of her outstanding example and commitment in promoting adoption.”

While Cheryl Bauman is an accomplished woman, dedicated to serving her community, she would quickly tell you her biggest achievements are her seven children, 22 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchild and her marriage of 50 years to Jerry.

Jerry and Cheryl have been faithful members of Christian Chapel since 1981. They enjoy spending time with their large family, traveling together, and the beloved cats and Whippet dogs.

Maggie Toupin, Executive Director

My name is Maggie Toupin, I have a passion and heart for seeing families thrive. I am a graduate of the University of Oklahoma with a degree in Human Relations. I have also served in the Tulsa community over the past 15 years in a variety of roles from teaching to mental health administration. My husband and I have had the joy of being foster, adoptive, and biological parents and reside in Broken Arrow, OK with our three children. It is an honor to be part of the CPO team, as it has been an organization that I have admired from a young age. The examples of bravery, hospitality, and faith that I witnessed first hand through the CPO families I knew created a lasting impact on me and have instilled in me a love for adoption and serving those in crisis. I look forward to serving with the leadership team as CPO expands its reach and to being used by God to serve women and families in our community and surrounding area.
