Homelessness

Partnering to help those in need

Addressing Homelessness

Homelessness abounds in Tulsa and in rural communities. Those on the front lines involved in the mission to prevent and help aid the homeless know that there is not a single solution.

To that end, Karen helped forge a partnership to utilize and repurpose the recently closed Tulsa County Juvenile Bureau facility into a place for up to 55 homeless to have their own temporary space. Services will help residents with programs from the Mental Health Association, the Salvation Army, The Tulsa Day Center, Morton Comprehensive Health Services, Tulsa Transit, Iron Gate and others. 

The hope of the coalition partners is to help get residents on the right track and transitioned to permanent housing within 90 days or less.
