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.

A Way Home for Tulsa (AWH4T)  is a collaboration of 30 local organizations coordinated by the Community Service Council working together to prevent and end homelessness. 

A Better Way is a collaborative employment program between the City of Tulsa, Tulsa Area United Way and Mental Health Association Oklahoma. The Community Service Council is accepting and managing donations for A Better Way. 

What can you do? While our progress is promising, we need your support. Donate to A Better Way or join the collective impact work of A Way Home for Tulsa. Because working together is what works best. Learn more about homelessness in Tulsa >

CSC’s mission is to confront challenges to health, social, education and economic opportunities,
and strategically advance effective community-based solutions.
