TULSA, Okla. — The City of Tulsa is working to make sure homeless and people outside for extended periods of time know the resources available to them throughout this deep freeze.
There are two warming stations currently open in Tulsa for anyone seeking shelter from the extreme cold, namely:
- John 3:16 Mission | 506 N. Cheyenne | Open 24/7
- Salvation Army Center of Hope | 102 N. Denver Ave. | Open 24/7 with capacity limits
The city’s overflow shelter for homeless is serving an additional 57 individuals due to weather, maxing out the capacity at 116.
The Mental Health Association of Oklahoma’s peer outreach program is going out into the community and doing street outreach. They are helping transfer individuals to local shelters, including the city’s overflow shelter.
Warm meals prepared by Iron Gate continue to be provided daily.
The city is also working with A Way Home for Tulsa partners and Housing Solutions to keep our vulnerable neighbors safe during this cold weather.
If you see someone who needs assistance, utilize their online form [housingsolutionstulsa.org]. Outreach teams will follow up once the form is completed.
If you see someone in immediate danger, call 911.
