The Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless has the goal of helping clients achieve self-sufficiency. Through various services, the Day Center gives clients the resources and support needed to rejoin the workforce and/or become re-housed.
Support – The Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless has general, mental health and eviction prevention case managers available to clients. Case managers provide support to clients by introducing them to resources such as healthcare, job application websites, housing resources and, if qualified, financial aid opportunities. Like all of our homeless programs, this is at zero cost to clients.
Day Center Clinic – The Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless has registered nurses and an ARNP on staff to provide healthcare to clients. These nurses do everything from administering tuberculosis tests to diagnosing asthma. They go beyond helping the homeless, providing critical services that increase quality of life while saving tax dollars by diverting several EMSA calls and hospital visits.
Programs – What started as a way to get personalized voicemail boxes for clients needing a reliable way to communicate has transitioned into a collection of homeless programs aimed at keeping clients up-to-date on community events, city news and the latest job opportunities.
Hudson Villas – Hudson Villas was a longtime dream of the Tulsa Day Center staff that finally came to life in 2013. This apartment complex helps those who have been chronically homeless by providing permanent supportive housing. All 60 income-based apartments were filled within 90 days, and many of the residents have seen significant health and lifestyle improvements allowing many to rejoin the work force.
