Hudson Villas is a Permanent Supportive Housing Program of the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. The Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless’ mission is to provide a safe, healthy environment for people who are homeless and offer them opportunities and encouragement for achieving self-sufficiency. Hudson Villas supports that mission by providing quality affordable housing for those individuals who have not lived successfully in other housing, and that they will finally have a home to call their own and will never return to homelessness.
The Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless firmly believes that this program is the next step toward eliminating homelessness in Tulsa. The Day Center has created a program that is respectful, culturally attuned, and gives a person who is chronically homeless every opportunity to be successfully housed. Hudson Villas expands on that belief and provides quality, affordable housing for individuals who may have few, if any, alternatives. To reach the goal of this program, Hudson Villas has implemented an array of support services to assist tenants in achieving residential stability.
The goal of Hudson Villas is to create an environment that allows residents to create a sense of real home and to:
- Avoid returning to homelessness,
- Build life skills and build self esteem,
- Expand participation in volunteerism,
- Increase employment abilities and opportunities,
- Enhance their financial position and personal well being.
While living in an affordable and supportive environment it is our goal that the residents of Hudson Villas will build and maintain a positive self image and become active participants in their new community.
Hudson Villas, LLC is owned and professionally managed by the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. Both Property Management and Support Services are located on site. To find out more about the Day Center and its programs – tulsadaycenter.org
