Ending Homelessness One Person at a Time

When our neighbors thrive, it benefits us all. We know the life-changing power of having a place to call home, and we've made it our mission to do our part. 

Through advocacy, volunteering, board leadership, and monetary support, we can be part of community solutions to end homelessness in our city. Find out how you can get involved below. For more information on the figures below, read the full OKC Point in Time Report.
