Volunteers From Across the State Help in Tornado Clean-up and Outreach

Salvation Army Tulsa

Help is in place and growing in Barnsdall and Bartlesville after tornadoes touched down.

  • Sweet Salvation: Tulsa Salvation Army Volunteers are in full force in Barnsdall as they delivered dozens of pizzas, hundreds of waters, clean clothes and countless prayers to the men and women working to clean up the destruction.

  • Recover With Red: The American Red Cross of Oklahoma is helping with supplies as well. They’ve opened a shelter at the Osage County Fairgrounds for residents displaced by the storms. It offers a safe place to sleep, meals, health services for disaster-related conditions, spiritual care and more.

Tulsa Girls Home Opens 2 New Townhomes

Tulsa Girls Home

Tulsa Girls Home gives foster girls a place to live, heal and hope. Now, the girls aging out of foster care will have a place to call a temporary home of their own.

  • Shovels for Success: Tulsa Girls Home relocated to Jenks and celebrated big this week! The home will welcome more girls in need of high quality residential care for those in Oklahoma foster care. The girls find healing through therapies and trauma-informed programs that promote the development of social and relationship healing.

  • Teachable Townhomes: The new site has enough land to build four townhomes to help the girls aging out of foster care make their way into the world and eventually live on their own. They broke ground on two of those townhomes today!

Mayor G.T. Bynum Proposes His Final City of Tulsa Budget

Tulsa Daily

Tulsa’s 2024-2025 proposed budget backs a powerful punch as Mayor Bynum’s last.

  • Show Me the Money: The 24/25 $1.023-Billion budget calls for a safer Tulsa. Some features include restoring the City's emergency operating reserve to a level of 8.5% of the general fund, allowing for a 2-year program to convert City-owned highway lights to LEDs through the voter-approved PSO Franchise Agreement, and adjusts our utility rates to keep Tulsa in line with the cost to deliver service. 

  • Room for More: The budget also calls for enhancing the Tulsa Fire side of the 911 Center by adding two positions and a new app that will give instantaneous direct connection between first responders and citizens. The budget calls for a Homeless Program Lead who will collaborate with City leadership and external stakeholders in the development, implementation and monitoring of City-led homelessness efforts as part of the Path to Home initiative.
