Housing Solutions is a non-profit organization dedicated to building systems that make homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Housing Solutions is the lead agency for the Tulsa County HUD funded Continuum of Care (CoC) - A Way Home for Tulsa.
The lead agency will be the implementation lead for the strategic plan while guiding local service providers through systems changes to implement evidence-based practices.
As the lead agency in the HUD-funded Tulsa County Continuum of Care, Housing Solutions coordinates and manages over $3 million annually in federal, state, county, and city funds for programs providing shelter, housing, and services to people experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.
More than at any other time, there is a lack of housing that low income people can afford. Without housing options, people face eviction, instability and homelessness.
Low income households often do not earn enough to pay for food, clothing, transportation and a place they can call home.
Health and homelessness are inextricably linked. Health problems can cause a person’s homelessness as well as be exacerbated by the experience. Housing is key to addressing the health needs of people experiencing homelessness.
Many survivors of domestic violence become homeless when leaving an abusive relationship.
Most minority groups in the United States experience homelessness at higher rates than Whites, and therefore make up a disproportionate share of the homeless population.
