OUR MISSION: Making homes safe and secure for low-income homeowners

OUR VISION: A safe and healthy home for everyone

STORY BEHIND THE COVER: Mr.Wyatt Mr. Wyatt has lived in his home for 57 years. Unfortunately, Mr. Wyatt lost his wife of 57 years in 2020. He is 84 years old, deaf and lives on his own. Physically and financially, it was a challenge to make the needed repairs to make his home a safe, secure and weatherproof place to age in place.

Revitalize T-Town installed new flooring and an ADA toilet in Mr. Wyatt’s bathroom. RTT also replaced Mr. Wyatt’s broken windows and weather-sealed his door. Mr. Wyatt’s sister, Margaret, told RTT staff, “His windows were broken out. With these new windows, we won't have to worry about cold or hot air coming in! He went through the last winter with those broken windows, and it was frigid in his home. We no longer have to worry about that, thanks to Revitalize T-Town. Thank you so much for helping him!”


LETTERS FROM THE BOARD CHAIR and CEO Thank you for helping Revitalize T-Town (RTT) serve our Tulsa neighbors in need for the 24th year! We are grateful for the continued support of our mission- A safe and healthy home for everyone!

Our everyday normal has changed greatly from 2019 to 2021. The pandemic has changed our view of what and whom is important in our lives as well as to be thankful for what we have. The mission of Revitalize T-Town - making homes safe and secure for low-income homeowners continues to be just as important now through the pandemic. Although how RTT interacts with donors and the community changed from largely in-person to almost completely virtual, the work done for the low-income homeowners in the Tulsa area has been crucial in helping restore the health in their home.

As the world gradually opened back up, RTT returned to our new normal. Although we didn't have as many face-to-face interactions as before, we all worked full force towards our mission. Our clients adapted to more phone calls and mailings, our donors supported our virtual events beyond our wildest expectations(!), our board became experts at efficient and effective zoom meetings, and our staff worked from their homes around Tulsa to make sure our needs of our clients were met. We look forward to serving Tulsa for many more years!

Thank you to all of our donors for helping Revitalize T-Town make low-income homeowners' homes in our community safe and secure this past year! The donations from your heart to their homes are so greatly appreciated.

Thank you for supporting RTT and the people we serve,

Jennifer Barcus-Schafer Chief Executive Officer

Ms. Donna

Ms. Donna was scared to use her steep steps without a sturdy handrail. The threshold of her exterior door was rotted, letting cold air in during the winter. She also needed a new roof. Ms. Donna lives alone. She had moved into her home with her husband 47 years ago. Since her husband passed away, it has been hard to keep up with the repairs her home needed. When Revitalize T-Town staff visited her home, Ms. Donna shared pictures and stories of her husband. Now, Ms. Donna can safely stay in her home and cherish all of the memories she made there with her late husband. RTT installed new extended steps with a stable handrail, replaced her rotted exterior door threshold and replaced her roof! Ms. Donna told Revitalize T-Town staff, "I can't thank you enough."

The J. Family

Kenneth works hard to take care of his wife, Angela, and their family. Angela has suffered two strokes and also has peripheral artery disease. As a result of the peripheral artery disease, part of her lower leg and foot were removed in July. Now, Angela uses a wheelchair. Within a few short days, the J. family went from needing handrails to needing a wheelchair ramp. They also needed a roof. Their roof leaks were so significant that they were using tarps to keep precipitation from entering their home. The J. family received a roof replacement and a wheelchair ramp! Angela told Revitalize T-Town staff, "I'm so relieved and thankful for the ramp. I was so worried about Kenneth having to carry me all the time. I was afraid he was going to hurt his back, and then the whole house would come down. I'm so grateful, and, believe it or not, I actually feel better now that my leg is gone."

“In our house, you could stand and tell which way the wind was blowing. The windows leaked so bad. They put in the big, beautiful window in front and one in our kitchen. That has made a world of a difference, and our utility bill has dropped!” 14
