Over the years, MHAT has been assembling properties to offer housing to the chronically homeless. Today, they have over 650 units of housing --- and an amazing track record of getting people off the streets and into permanent housing. Their approach is labeled "Housing First," and according to the most recent census, there are fewer than 100 chronic homeless on Tulsa's streets today.
