Public Housing For Seniors

Each development was designed and built with your needs in mind.  Spacious, unfurnished apartments give you room to have the things around you that make it a home. Efficiencies and one-bedroom units are available. Each apartment is a private living environment including a full-size kitchen equipped with basic appliances. With some restrictions, small pets are allowed, so you may bring that special family member.  Our Centers' main dining rooms are pleasantly decorated and provide a healthy noon meal each day. Every Senior Center development has its own community center with a full-time director for planned activities.

These activities include social activities, arts and crafts, exercise classes, workshops, worship and Bible study classes, adult education classes and lectures. The Community Centers also provide transportation to nearby shopping centers, medical facilities, entertainment events and tours.

If you like the outdoors, take a stroll on the many walking paths or enjoy a restful moment at one of the many seating areas located around the grounds. Our Centers' large and comfortable community lounge areas provide the opportunity to make new friends or meet friends and family.

You get special attention

Many Oklahoma City organizations work with the OCHA to provide the support services necessary to assess and continually meet each individual's needs.  Each Senior Center has a full-time on-site staff that is dedicated to ensuring you have access to all the help and services available. These services include: information and referral, transportation, facilitation of health services, adult education, individual and group counseling, outreach and companionship.

If you are disabled or handicapped, several of our apartments are specially equipped to provide you with as free a lifestyle as possible.  All Senior Center developments are designed to be disabled or handicapped accessible throughout the facility.

Security is peace of mind

Feeling secure covers many areas, and the OCHA has taken care to see that our residents have peace of mind.  We have our own uniformed security force and armed officers on roving patrol 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  In addition, eight-foot iron fences are used to limit entry onto the grounds.  Each Center is equipped with an automatic sprinkler system in case of fire.

Our Centers are also located close to medical facilities.  Requests for maintenance are handled quickly, so our residents don't have to worry about not having full use of the facilities.
