Homelessness in Tulsa

The only one true end to homelessness is a safe and stable place to call home.

Tulsa has made significant progress in supporting those in our community who are experiencing homelessness, or at-risk of homelessness, through the leadership of two local initiatives: A Way Home for Tulsa and A Better Way.

What can you do?

While our progress is promising, we need your support.

The City of Tulsa and the Community Service Council have released the 2019 Equality Indicators report, which uses data to measure equality as it relates to economic opportunity, education, housing, justice, public health and services in Tulsa.

In 2018, we released the first Equality Indicators Report to establish a statistical baseline for understanding inequality in Tulsa. In 2019, Tulsa received an overall score of 41.74 out of 100, compared to a 40.02 from 2018.
