Tulsa Day Center Timeline/strong>
1986 - Tulsa Day Center created
1990 - Night Shelter opened
1995 - New facility
1999 - Nonprofit organization

An average of 400 people seek shelter and services each day at the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless, which is the only day time shelter in Tulsa for people who are homeless or in need. We seek to protect the dignity of each person by providing food, warmth, shelter and safety to meet immediate and pressing needs.

We provide night shelter, case management, a free Nurses' Clinic, showers, restrooms, telephones, Community Voice Mail, a clothing room, mail services and a locked storage area. Eight case managers work one on one with clients to remove barriers to self-sufficiency. The Nurses' Clinic provides urgent care, TB testing, vision screening, health education and referrals to other health care resources.

The Day Center was created in 1986 by a group of concerned Tulsans seeking to provide a safe place for people who were homeless. Originally founded by Tulsa Metropolitan Ministry (TMM), the Day Center opened in January 1986 in a renovated warehouse at 210 N. Denver Ave. In 1990, the Night Shelter opened to provide overnight shelter for women, individuals with mental or physical illness and men over 55. In January 1995, the Day Center moved into a brand new 24,000 square foot facility. On June 1, 1999 the TMM Day Center for the Homeless became the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless, Inc. The Day Center is a 501(c)(3) private nonprofit organization.
