With the resurgence of downtown Tulsa, an increased effort is being made to get the chronic homeless into permanent housing. The Better Box Project is an initiative using social media to educate people about the problem and get help for those who want to quit living on the streets. One organization behind the effort is Mental Health Association Oklahoma. Michael Brose is the Director. He says social media through facebook, twitter, or other methods is a better way to communicate with younger people to make them aware of the plight of the chronic homeless and how they can be helped.
Brose says anyone who wants to learn more and help can get information on the web at betterboxproject.org.
