We are sorry.

We've reached our capacity for assistance with rent and utilities this week. Please call 2-1-1 to be connected to resources who may be able to assist you.

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGES!  The weekly rent and utility assistance screening on Mondays will now open at 8:30 a.m. via our website online form & our new intake form via phone will begin at 9:00 a.m. by calling 405-232-5507. Please follow the phone prompts to be placed in the queue until a case manager can answer.  We will respond to requests for assistance in the order they are received until we reach our funding capacity for the week.  We will not receive requests during weeks with holidays.
We will resume taking requests on Monday, January 24.


The Upward Transitions' office will be closed, all day today. Staff is working remotely due to weather conditions. Please reach us via phone or email. Thanks for your understanding.
