What is the Tulsa Landlord Tenant Resource Center?

The Tulsa Landlord Tenant Resource Center (LTRC) launched in October 2020 to provide free services in legal information, pro bono referrals, “know your rights” information for both landlords and tenants, and referrals to housing-supportive social services through the UniteUS Network. LTRC is part of Housing Solutions, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making homelessness in Tulsa rare, brief, and non-recurring. The LTRC operates the Social Services HUB (Eviction Diversion Program) at Iron Gate Mon-Thurs from 1-4:30pm (onsite partners: Restore Hope, Community Cares Partners, Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma, Financial Empowerment Center, and more).

Data Dashboard

We believe transparent and accessible data is foundational to our work to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring. This dashboard exists to help the community, A Way Home for Tulsa, and all stakeholders understand the state of homeless prevention services offered by the Landlord Tenant Resource Center in the Tulsa City and County area.
