The Homeless Alliance (HA) mission is to rally the community to end homelessness in central Oklahoma. They seek to identify community needs and fill the gaps with new and innovative programs HA operates four social enterprises, each providing employment, job skills training, income and case management to people experiencing homelessness and people at risk of homelessness. They also operate the community’s only general use day shelter; manage OKC, Norman, and rural Oklahoma’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS); provide housing programs; and facilitate close collaboration among the government, faith-based, and nonprofit agencies addressing homelessness in OKC. This grant will be used to acquire eight adjacent lots. HA will relocate current occupants to more suitable housing and demolish the dilapidated and uninhabitable housing currently on the property. They will then explore, through a strategic planning process, the best use for the property to benefit their clients, agency and the community going forward.
