Sangha's programming is based on the Eight Dimensions of Wellness as defined by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
Residents at Sangha get more than a safe place to crash at night, they are provided with numerous resources to assist them while they start on their journey into recovery.
We understand that each of our residents are individuals, so our life skills programming is tailored to their specific needs. And because Sangha is a nonprofit, we are able to have a more "hands on" approach with our residents during their transition.
Residents currently have a full access gym membership (within walking distance of the house) which includes yoga classes, free weights, showers and spa rooms. We have also arranged preferred access to four staffing agencies - two of which are able to assist applicants who have felony charges on their record. Sangha has implemented a mentorship program for residents who are nearing their transition into independent living, where they can apply to be paired with a successful member of the Tulsa Community who has offered to share their time, encouragement, and advice. When weather permits, we try to take our residents out for team building activities.
Sangha really does love Tulsa! Founder and Executive Director Marcus Abernathy is a member of the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce, while Sangha's Program Coordinator Dylan Witt is an active member of Tulsa Young Professionals (TYPros). Each of them are constantly seeking to build new and fruitful relationships within the Tulsa Community. Our mission is to help our residents become productive and socially responsible members of the Tulsa Community, and each of these relationships help us fulfill that mission. As the name Sangha means “community” – that is truly what we are building; a community of men supporting each other in their recovery. It is beautiful to witness!
