Our initiatives assist homeless persons through a systematic local strategy that provides the forum in which service providers, consumers, public officials, and citizens can work together to achieve common goals that facilitate the prevention of and recovery from homelessness.
We focus on the belief that the solution to homelessness is housing and that by making housing available and accessible to all, our community will have healthy, productive and engaged members. We seek to identify affordable housing options, encourage landlords to receive housing choice vouchers, utilize rapid re-housing funds and SSVF, and to offer “second chance” options to tenants with barriers to housing.
We support Tulsa’s homeless prevention service providers, coordinate client services, examine data, and unite the community around ending homelessness.
We are also part of a national campaign known as Built for Zero that has helped guide our work in developing a systematic local strategy for the Tulsa community to achieve common goals and collect meaninful data that facilitate the prevention of and recovery from homelessness.
The Community Service Council is committed to providing information about key social and demographic conditions and trends as a tool for identifying, addressing and responding to community needs. Our Homelessness Data Dashboard provides the community access to aggregate data from various local and national sources used by A Way Home for Tulsa’s collective impact work to prevent and end homelessness for all Tulsans.
