As bitter temperatures continue in Tulsa, our homeless citizens can find shelter at several warming stations in the area. The F&CS Homeless Outreach Team was there yesterday and will continue to volunteer throughout the weekend amid the dangerously cold weather.
“When the shelter staff contacted us about providing extra support, our homeless services staff was quick to respond to provide mental health support to those most in need. We will continue to do so while the temperatures are dangerously low,” said Kathy Loehr, director of F&CS’s Homeless & Diversion Services.
