SPOTLIGHT — South Tulsa Community House
South Tulsa Community House (STCH) has been providing services in support of the community for nearly 30 years. As a social services agency, they help individuals and families combat hunger and poverty, and ultimately empower clients to independence.
The organization dedicates its assistance to those in the heart of the Riverwood community of south Tulsa who are victims of job loss, working individuals needing additional help, senior citizens, parents or grandparents with children, individuals with disabilities or illnesses, and people suffering from other crises.
STCH’s food pantry offers supplemental food to individuals and families, as well as meals to seniors and veterans. Approximately 98% of the food pantry clients are considered extremely low-income (less than 30% of the median U.S. family income level).
STCH also provides access to a business center; hygiene items; bus tokens to help acquire or maintain benefits, housing, make appointments, and address legal concerns; and referral to additional resources.
Other services STCH provides include transportation assistance, access to medical services, and legal aid.
STCH has a variety of volunteer opportunities for people with all kinds of skills and talents. The organization also has a list of needed items they update each month for those looking to donate used or new items. They also rely on donations, which can be made online or in person, and designated contributions to a specific program.
