The Goal: Greater Equality in Tulsa

The Community Service Council in partnership with the City of Tulsa has been chosen to be among the first cities to work with the City University of New York's Institute for State and Local Governance to develop indicators to measure progress toward achieving greater equality in Tulsa over time. The framework development and baseline data collection will be supported by The Rockefeller Foundation. This opportunity grew directly out of the Listening Conference on Systemic Racism we held in January.
New Data-Focused Social Media Campaign

Our Communications and Data teams partnered up this spring to launch a new social media campaign focused entirely on community data. Graphics such as the ones below will display CSC program and census data that highlight k ey trends and issues affecting Oklahomans. The campaign launches the week of May 15 with categories such as "Map Mondays", "Know Your Community" stats, and "Fun Fact Fridays". Please be sure to like us and/or follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
Better Service for Veterans

The Community Service Council has signed a vital contract with UniteUs, a well-proven software company based in New York that has successfully helped more than a dozen cities connect multiple agencies that are involved in helping our veterans.This project will enhance the ability of our community to provide better service to veterans and help develop a larger base of volunteer veterans. Additionally, it will tie into our existing 2-1-1 Helpline, to provide even more information to veterans and their families.
Making an Impact on Housing
On May 10, the Community Service Council's Abode Initiative hosted a training for property managers on the benefits of accepting housing choice vouchers. Thanks to our partners - Tulsa Housing Authority, Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs - for helping us make this a successful event!
Spotlight on Dads

The first few days of May were filled with CSC's Building Foundations: Fathers, Families and Communities Conference at the Downtown DoubleTree Hotel. Congratulations to CSC team leader Kole Krause and staff from our Tulsa Healthy Start and Family Health Coalition for planning such a successful event.
Community Events

Great turnout and lots of fun this past weekend for the Bucky Golf Tournament at The Club at Indian Springs benefiting CSC's BRRX4Vets, the Picnic En Familia, co-sponsored by our Power of Families Project held at Camp Tookaboochee, and the Pop Up Festival held at the Guthrie Green hosted by our Tulsa Carrera Program.

Our Mission
