Developing: the dissolution of the Oklahoma Governor’s Interagency Council on Homelessness

As the premier boots-on-the-ground nonprofit whose expertise and work primarily exists at the intersection of mental illness and homelessness, we were disheartened to learn of Governor Stitt’s decision to disband the 19 year-old Oklahoma’s Governor on Interagency Council on Homelessness (GICH). 2News Oklahoma reached out to us for comment, and past chair of the GICH and current MHAOK Chief Housing Officer, Greg Shinn, offered an insightful and persuasive statement acknowledging the progress that has been made, while also punctuating how much more work that’s still needed to effectively end homelessness.
