A Way Home For Tulsa

Uniting the community to end homelessness 

A Way Home for Tulsa (AWH4T) is a collective impact of 30 voting organizations that exists to plan and implement strategies that support a system of outreach, engagement, assessment, prevention and evaluation for those experiencing homelessness, or those persons at risk of homelessness, within Tulsa City/County. Through AWH4T we support programs such as All Doors Open, Coordinated Outreach and the Homeless Management Information System.

AWH4T utilizes the Continuum of Care (CoC) model mandated by the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act) which codifies into law the CoC planning process. As the HUD designated Collaborative Applicant, our work includes facilitating the application process each year for HUD’s CoC Homeless Assistance Grants competition.

A Way Home for Tulsa maintains an open membership policy, supports diversification of its membership and endeavors to ensure representation from individuals who are currently experiencing, or have formerly experienced homelessness. There are many ways to become with our efforts to end homelessness including serving on one of the AWH4T committees, task forces or current initiatives.

FY 2019 CoC Program NOFA Consolidated Application

On behalf of A Way Home for Tulsa, the Tulsa City-County Continuum of Care, the Community Service Council (CSC) released the Request for Project Applications (RFA) that ended August 31, 2019.

The CoC Program is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.

DID YOU KNOW? Highlights from our Homelessness in Tulsa report.

Each individual surveyed was experiencing homelessness in Tulsa on the night of January 25, 2018. This survey was conducted in accordance with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development standards to estimate the number of people experiencing sheltered homeless and unsheltered homelessness on a single night.

This video was produced by the City of Tulsa for the A Way Home for Tulsa Strategic Planning Kick-Off event. Learn more about our Strategic Planning efforts and how you can get involved here >
