There are hundreds of people in the Tulsa area who are experiencing homelessness.

Often we will see people on the side of the road asking for money, yesterday Sgt. Meulenberg and Captain Tipler went out to 71st and Hwy 169 and then to Hwy 169 at the Memorial exit handing out brochures from our partners at Community Service Council that talks about the Community Service Council's AWH4T.

This is a fantastic program that partners with all of these groups:
12 & 12 - 12and12.org
City of Tulsa Gov
Counseling & Recovery Services of Oklahoma
DaySpring Villa
Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs
DVIS
Family & Children's Services
Family Promise of Tulsa County
INCOG - incog.org
Iron Gate Tulsa
John 3:16 Mission
Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma, Inc.
Mental Health Association Oklahoma
Morton Comprehensive Health Services, Inc.
National Resource Center for Youth Svcs - nrcys.ou.edu
Oklahoma Department of Human Services

Here is a link to a recent report about the state of homelessness in Tulsa:
https://www.csctulsa.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/CSC-Homelessness-Annual-Report_5.11.18.compressed.pdf?fbclid=IwAR3S2XWTrgzHQ59wQP_rcN8PW37zwENolnwuoA426dF-p-XaOe6AEAabmm4

Many individuals have mental illness and substance abuse issues, we would humbly encourage people not to give cash directly to them. We have multiple groups listed above that will help with placement, mental health, medical needs, legal needs, and spiritual needs.

If you want to help, please contact any of the above agencies, who are all working together to help those experiencing homelessness. Your contribution can go so much farther than in individual contribution.

DISCLAIMER (we know that some will take offense):
This is America and you can do anything that you would like with the monies that you have worked for. It is not against the law, immoral, or wrong of anyone to help out their fellow human in any way that they would like to.

We are simply trying to show that there are groups in Tulsa deeply concerned with helping and for every one person on the corner there are 100 more that go unseen.

It's all of the above groups that go out and find those in the community that don't stand on the corner asking for money, they need help too. That's why a contribution of volunteering for the above groups can help so many more than that one person.

If you read this far, we greatly appreciate all of the people of Tulsa area for trying to help each other out.

Be safe and have a great weekend.

Created by D.C. Minner himself with, and now presented by, Selby Minner and the Friends of Rentiesville Blues Inc., the old cotton field out back will ring with the blues!! D.C. (1935-2008, in 7 Halls of Fame) knew they were bulldozing old juke joints every day and has kept his family legacy alive here in Rentiesville, where he was born and raised, for people to enjoy from now on. . . . Kids are free, we keep them busy. The High School Jazz Band will come in courtesy of Jim Davis. And there is a Gospel Show to start the Festivities on Sunday. The outdoor part is the most family friendly Blues festival you will find. But adults only in the juke joint, please. All the headliners from the main outdoor stage come inside after midnight and perform their second sets.
Years of People having FUN: .
The festival takes place in Rentiesville, the childhood home of famed blues singer/guitarist D.C. Minner, who founded the OBHOF in 2004 with his wife, Selby Minner. This year’s blues festival again brings in 200 performers from across Oklahoma and the US. D.C. Minner, in 7 Halls of Fame, is also an inductee of the Rhythm & Routes Oklahoma Music Trail. Visit the Rhythm & Routes website to learn more about the places in Oklahoma that inspired his career, listen to his music and browse an online collection of photos and videos. “The Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF + MO) is thrilled for the continued success of the OBHOF” said OF + MO Deputy Director of Music Lindsey Flowers. “As an honoree on the Rhythm and Routes Oklahoma Music Trail, D.C. Minner has brought national attention to Oklahoma’s legendary blues music culture and this year’s Rentiesville celebrations will continue to honor his legacy.”
