Founded in 1918, Tulsa Boys’ Home began in a two-story house in downtown Tulsa. Leaders of the First Presbyterian Church and the Downtown Rotary Club were instrumental in its establishment. Its first two boys were found sleeping in trash boxes in an alley.
Tulsa Boys' Home was the first and remains the largest residential treatment facility serving troubled boys in Oklahoma. Each year, we deliver residential services to 64 boys (and sometimes their families) on a daily basis. At the Tulsa Boys' Home, 40 of our boys are placed by the Department of Human Services, and the other 24 are privately placed by parents or legal guardians.
Many of these boys learn to lead productive lives and credit TBH for breaking the cycle of poverty, abuse, neglect and/or drug addiction that is often passed on from generation to generation.
