2020 OKWIL Event: Homeless Alliance Volunteer Outreach

Event Description

Annually, the Oklahoma Chapter of Women In Lodging - OKWIL, partners with a local charitable organization to hold a community outreach day - providing a great opportunity for members to give back to our community!

This year's community outreach opportunity supports The Homeless Alliance. The Homeless Alliance works to end long-term homelessness in Oklahoma City by building the capacity of the community through collaboration with other agencies, identifying and filling gaps in homeless services, bringing nationally-recognized best practices to the community, and working to build a system that is more efficient, rationale, and caring. Click here to learn more about The Homeless Alliance.
