The Salvation Army has been working with the Oklahoma City Housing Authority since 1972 in providing support services to and for our residents. The support services provided include the following:
A full-time center director is on-site at three of our Senior Centers.
Eldercare provides the SEARCH (Support, Encouragement and Assistance to Residents of Community Housing) Program at each elderly development. Specifically the program provides case management services to those lower-income persons residing in those developments. The case management services include:
The ultimate goal of the program is to coordinate services that address an individual's needs in an effort to postpone the time a person is no longer able to reside in their own apartment because their needs can only be met by a skilled nursing facility. Service Coordinators are on-site at each Senior development.
Drug and Crime Hot-Line
In January, 1989, the Oklahoma City Housing Authority established a special Hot-Line. By calling 232-OCHA, residents may report any resident or unit they believe is involved in any illegal activity. Callers may remain anonymous.
Oklahoma City Housing Authority Protective Services
The OCHA recognized the need for a security patrol as a preventative maintenance measure and the OCHA Security Department was established in 1974.
Security is provided through uniformed guards who patrol on a regular basis to maintain a safe living environment for adults and children. A centralized phone number will secure assistance at any time, day or night. (405) 232-1041.
