Apartment Shelter Program
Family Promise of Tulsa County alleviates the three primary stressors of being homeless by providing shelter, transportation, and food for up to 120 days while our case manager and the families work together on individual case plans for success. The majority of the families welcomed into our program come with little to no resources, therefore, FPTC provides the financial means to obtain birth certificates and ID’s upon entry thereby enabling the parents to seek and obtain employment and enroll their children in school or daycare. This is a vital first step in the process of regaining a family’s independence. While in the program all basic necessities such as diapers, formula, hygiene items, toiletries, gas cards, and bus passes are coved which reduces the stress on the families and allows them to focus on obtaining employment, saving money, finding and securing a home of their own.
Our Apartment Shelters are used as a 30 to 120-day home for a family until they secure housing. When they do, a new family experiencing homelessness will enter the apartment shelter and receive the same intense case management and services and work towards self-sufficiency.
Future Starts at Home
There is a critical need for prevention and diversion services in the Tulsa area. The Future Starts at Home program is a vital strategy to address homelessness and provide support to vulnerable families.
By intervening early and providing targeted assistance, we can help families on the brink of homelessness maintain their housing stability and divert them from entering the cycle of homelessness altogether.
Our prevention/diversion program has limited funds, therefore, we are unable to offer financial assistance to every family that applies. If we are able to assist you, we will contact you within 48 hours and schedule an interview. If you have not received a reply within 48 hours we are unfortunately unable to approve your application. Please contact 211 for additional resources.
