Stay Cool at the Center of Hope

With temperatures in the triple digits and little hope for relief, here’s a reminder that The Salvation Center of Hope at 102 N. Denver is designated by the City of Tulsa as an official Cooling Station. That means anyone can stop by for a cool drink of water and sit in the air-conditioned lobby 24/7. The Center’s front desk employees have not seen many new guests coming in to cool off yet, but as air conditioners break down, this could change. Although the Center of Hope is a homeless shelter and social services center, a person does not have to be homeless to use its services during extreme weather. Remember, drink plenty of water and watch for signs of heat exhaustion: heavy sweating, feeling weak and/or confused, dizziness, nausea, headache and fast heart beat.  Stay cool!
