Can we END chronic homelessness in OKC? Yes!

Learn more about OKC’s work as part of the National 100KHomes Campaign.

The Homeless Alliance is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the system of care for the homeless in Oklahoma City through collaboration with government, faith-based and nonprofit service providers, city government, and local businesses. The ultimate goal of the Homeless Alliance is to rally our community to end long-term homelessness in Oklahoma City by both preventing homeless and increasing the supply of affordable and permanent supportive housing to move those who are currently homeless back into housing.

As a means of reaching the goal of ending homelessness, the Alliance envisions a cohesive, collaborative and coordinated system of care, utilizing nationally recognized best practices to dramatically improve the services provided to our homeless population.

The Alliance vigorously encourages the use of the Horizon Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), a federally-supported, networked computer database that enables service providers to access data on homeless clients and the services available to them. Widespread use of Horizon will not only facilitate case management but, in the process, also generate system-wide data on the number and characteristics of homeless persons in Oklahoma City.

The Homeless Alliance seeks to rally our community to find better ways to help our homeless and make the system more efficient, more rational, and more caring.
