Tulsa County leaders recognize the effort to end homelessness in the area, especially among veterans. Several groups are involved in ‘Project Zero 2016’. Mike Brose is Director of Mental Health Association Oklahoma. He says in the first 30 days of the effort, 32 homeless veterans and 19 chronic homeless people were moved off the streets and out of shelters into permanent housing.
A proclamation is released officially today by County Commissioners recognizing the commitment to end homelessness among veterans in Tulsa by the end of this year, and chronic homelessness by the end of next year.
