How have we helped the Tulsa area during COVID-19?
The nature of CSC’s work is that we operate mostly behind the scenes, but as this page showcases, our work is very much at the forefront of community issues and needs. Please consider donating to CSC so that we can continue our COVID-19 response, and the entire spectrum of support we provide for vulnerable Oklahomans.
Across all lines of services, Community Service Council programs saw dramatic increases in needs throughout 2020. 211Eastern Oklahoma doubled our staff to accomodate call volume to respond to COVID-19 calls and requests for food and utility assistance; our Veteran Program’s budget doubled to continue housing and feeding homeless veterans throughout Tulsa; our program for Hispanic/Latinx families added a staff member and distributed $150k in Immigrant Relief funds from GKFF in $500 increments to families not eligible for stimulus checks; our Child Care Resource Center designed online trainings for childcare workers and trained ten times the number of workers from previous years; and our Healthy Start partnered with Tulsa Metro Meals on Wheels to pay for a refrigerated truck to assist more families with meal delivery.
