Seeking to put God’s love into action, Tulsa Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Tulsa Habitat for Humanity does not give away homes. Instead, we provide access to the opportunity of homeownership for hardworking, deserving individuals and families in our community. Through house sponsorships, individual donations and volunteer time, we build quality, affordable and attractive houses. These homes are sold to families through 0%-interest loans.
"It brings happiness to my family not having to worry about where we are going to stay. Owning my home feels like an accomplishment. It brings joy knowing that we have a foundation for our future, somewhere my kids can grow up in knowing they have something that is theirs."
-Tamara Walker, homeowner since 2015
The Kendall-Whittier neighborhood, located between University of Tulsa and downtown, bordered by BNSF Railroad, 11th Street, Harvard and Utica, will be the strategic focus area for Tulsa Habitat for Humanity. There are approximately 300 vacant lots in the area and many condemned and substandard houses. Collective impact is a progressive, innovative approach to social change. It gathers people and organizations to work together to create lasting solutions to social problems on a large scale with coordinated efforts around clearly defined outcomes.
