TULSA DAY CENTER FOR THE HOMELESS INC
December 14, 2009

I have seen the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless rally their staff to administer a new program by the federal government to prevent homelessness and help those who have become homeless due to the economic recession. I have seen how their Community Voice mail program has reconnected homeless people with family members, helped them get jobs and led to permenant housing. I have seen the staff plan a memorial service for some 44 homeless people who have died in Tulsa in 2009. This memorial is the only remembrance many of these people will ever receive. The Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless has many more medical, legal and job programs too numerous to list here.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their ability to help people immediately at their point of need. They help families with children who have been evicted and ex-convicts who have just gotten out of prison and have no where to turn.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Altruistic, happy and tireless.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a world-class facility and staff it with an army of experts who could help these homeless people in their various circumstances build confidence and become contributing members of society.
