Awarded: $84,450

Mental Health Association Oklahoma (the Association) has been advocating for Oklahomans impacted by mental illness and homelessness since 1955. The Association currently owns and manages 1,470 units of affordable housing in Tulsa within 27 apartment complexes across ​20 Tulsa neighborhoods and 32 units within one Oklahoma City apartment complex. Current programs include mental health education, support groups, pro bono counseling, mental health screening and referral, suicide prevention, peer-to-peer recovery services, employment readiness, community health and wellness initiatives, and criminal justice advocacy.

To continue their Oklahoma City outreach, the Association engaged a $10 million integrated capital campaign in 2015 that will provide a new administrative home for the Association, add to the Association’s capital reserve fund, and initiate affordable housing in Oklahoma City for individuals impacted by homelessness and mental illness.
