Mental Health Assn. In Tulsa, Inc.
November 9, 2012

My first experience with the MHAT was as an external auditor for many years. From this relationship I observed the passion and dedication MHAT's employees exhibited in serving their clients and thier mission. I audited many nonprofits in the area, many of which are truly wonderful organizations. However, MHAT stood out to me as and Organization I wanted to get more involved with. When I left the firm that performed the audit, I made the decision to volunteer with MHAT. I served on the Board for 6 years and continue to serve on the Finance Committee. The Association has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 10 years due to the passion exhibited by the Staff, volunteers (including Board Members) and donors. Their "housing first" model has made the most significant impact on me. They embraced the concept that you can't expect someone to sober up, clean up, get a job THEN provide them with housing. You're much more successful when you provide a person with safe, affordable housing and wrap them with the services they need (whether from MHAT or other local nonprofits).
