MEETING THE NEED

MEETING THE NEED HOMELESSNESS T he Center of Hope, 102 N. Denver, is a place for Tulsans to go when they have no other place to go. It is the largest overnight shelter in Eastern Oklahoma offering emergency shelter and public meals 365 days a year. On an average night, 285-325 guests sleep in the shelter and between 900-1,000 meals are served. The facility is also home to a range of social services aimed at helping people identify and overcome the causes of their homelessness while offering support that allows them to improve their lives. The fastest growing population at the Center of Hope is families. These families have often lost everything and are struggling to keep their children fed and housed safely. Our facility offers family rooms for overnight guests as well as 17 supportive housing apartments for those who are motivated to work their way back to permanent housing and want to use our facility as a launch pad to get back on their feet. Individuals and families can work with professional case managers to formulate a plan for becoming self-sufficient and are given tools and resources to help them succeed. In addition to the family housing, the Center of Hope provides long term shelter (up to two years) for singles who are committed to becoming independent. The Center also serves as a community resource by offering utility assistance, public meals and serving as a heating and cooling station when extreme temperatures hit.

MEETING THE NEED WORSHIP T he Tulsa Metro Area Command of The Salvation Army is committed to serving the spiritual needs of our neighbors. After all, SALVATION is our middle name! The heart of The Salvation Army is found in its spiritual ministry. From here, we reach out to heal wounds of the soul, to share the love of Jesus Christ and to proclaim God's promise of salvation. Everything The Salvation Army does is to show God's love to others. The Salvation Army is considered a Protestant denomination of the Christian Church with beliefs that are in line with mainstream Christian teaching. Salvation Army officers are ordained ministers who can perform marriages and dedicate children and who provide ministerial duties for their congregations. Salvation Army Churches, known as Corps, are made up of congregations of soldiers (church members) and adherents. Each congregation is unique, while maintaining the basic facets of Salvation Army service. In all cases, these congregations are welcoming, loving places and would love to have you visit them anytime. In Tulsa, we have three Corps/worship centers that serve as the heart of our spiritual mission. Each center is a church, providing worship on Sundays. These centers also provide various educational, recreational, social services and pastoring programs. Our Center of Hope also holds daily worship services in its chapel that are open to the public.
