Neighbors helping Neighbors
Homelessness and homeless camps are a complicated social issue and Oklahoma City is fortunate to have great service providers for this population. In the WesTen District there have been challenges with homeless camps that are illegally situated and causing significant negative issues for surrounding homes and businesses.
In a such recent scenario, one business got to know some of their business neighbors, received strong support from three OKCPD officers from the Southwest Division, and was able to resolve their situation. So, a big shout out to getting involved and to the police for their help. WesTen has a few “what to do” ideas, should you encounter this in your area, feel free to contact WesTen here for that information.
