City Care

Award Date: September 8, 2022
Awarded: $40,250

City Care inspires those willing to look social injustice and extreme poverty in the face and empowers them to do whatever it takes to create change. In partnership with the Oklahoma County Diversion Hub, the Housing Navigator works to provide housing services to individuals who are justice-involved. They create a culture of client-centered service while helping their clients develop the skills and capacity to care for their families. They are also responsible for collecting data, records, and documentation of services offered. The Housing Navigator builds relationships with local landlords and property managers to develop understanding and dispel fallacies about leasing space to justice-involved individuals. In addition, the Navigator serves as a support network for clients, offering help with security deposits, furnishings for the home, and utilities setup. This position is collaborative in nature, working closely with other service providers, including the Homeless Alliance, and adopts the “no wrong door” policy in approach, meaning that they make a point to help any individual that walks through the door. If they cannot be served by City Care, referrals to other service providers and resources will be made.
