Tulsa Habitat for Humanity: What They Do Now, and What They Have Planned for the Immediate Future

Feb 12, 2018

On this installment of ST, our guest is Cameron Walker, the Executive Director of Tulsa Habitat for Humanity (or THFH). This crucial nonprofit recently received a $6.7 million grant from the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, and therefore, as we learn on today's program, THFH is transitioning from building 25 to 30 houses per year (which is what it does in the Tulsa area currently) to building 150 houses per year (which is what it aims to be doing four years from now). This grant has also led THFH to create, as Walker tells us, an affiliated nonprofit (known as Boomtown Development) that will help them find housing solutions for people who make too much money to qualify for Habitat housing but not enough to qualify for a traditional mortgage.
