Winter Shelter Construction and Renovation

Homeless Alliance

Award Date: November 10, 2023
Awarded: $900,000

Homeless Alliance operates the community’s only general use day shelter; manages OKC, Norman, and rural Oklahoma’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS); provides housing programs; and facilitates close collaboration among the government, faith-based, and nonprofit agencies addressing homelessness in OKC. They also operate four social enterprises, each providing employment, job skills training, income and case management to people experiencing homelessness and people at risk of homelessness. This grant will be used to complete construction of the Homeless Alliance winter shelter. The winter shelter will be open every night throughout the winter months to provide a safe, warm, dry place for Oklahoma City's unsheltered homeless population. The winter shelter will provide an indoor space for companion animals and secure storage space for personal belongings.
