Ending Chronic Homelessness in Tulsa
On this edition of our show, we hear from Michael Brose and Greg Shinn of the Mental Health Association of Tulsa. Over the years, MHAT has been assembling properties to offer housing to the chronically homeless. Today, they have over 650 units of housing --- and an amazing track record of getting people off the streets and into permanent housing. Their approach is labeled "Housing First," and according to the most recent census, there are fewer than 100 chronic homeless on Tulsa's streets today. The Mental Health Association has set an ambitious goal to eliminate chronic homelessness in our community withthe next few years, and Brose and Shinn share their vision and strategies.
