Coming soon to Tulsa: Tiny home villages for the formerly homeless

November 14, 2022 5:40 pm

Mayor G.T. Bynum recently pledged that the city of Tulsa would begin taking a more active role in addressing Tulsa’s homelessness crisis.

The message has generally been well-received by the nonprofits, foundations and social service agencies that for years have been doing the outreach, staffing and funding the shelters, and advocating for the community’s most vulnerable population.

Meanwhile, the work goes on. Two nonprofits — one new and one not — are developing separate but similar programs to provide chronically homeless people with permanent residences.
