                                                    Best Practices: The Coffee Bunker of Tulsa OK

The Coffee Bunker is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in Tulsa Oklahoma that specializes in rehabilitation services and provides support for Service Members, Veterans and Families (SMVFs) in the state of Oklahoma.

Some of the more notable services that the Coffee Bunker provides are “Operation Scout” and a program called “Fighting addictions”. Operation Scout provides free WIFI, computer access, skill and career assessments, tutoring, printers, resume and job search help and provides a variety of schedules to meet the needs of the SMVFs. The Coffee Bunker also provides veterans with a 12-step group program called Fighting Addictions that welcomes the struggling War Fighter into an environment with other veterans whom share the same struggles.  Additionally, the “Community Connect” program allows other agencies to use the Coffee Bunker for workshops, speaking events, meetings and classes to present their information and programs to the veteran community at large. One of the nonprofits best highlights is the “Operation Safety Net program that provides immediate shelter to male homeless veterans who are in need. This program collaborates with the “John 3:16 Mission”, and can provide a transitional shelter stay that can last as long as 2 months.

Not to be left out, the Coffee Bunker also provides local SMVFs with the “Lady Bunker program”.  Lady Bunker refers to the 4-hour block of time when the Coffee Bunker is open only for its female population.  This provides a safe, comfortable environment for those women who have suffered from sexual abuse and the anxiety associated with this type of trauma.  The purpose of this is to help reintegrate these ladies at a pace they can control according to their own individual needs.

We should join together and support the Coffee Bunker of Tulsa, Oklahoma for providing all of these great programs and services that support Service Members, Veterans and Families of the great state of Oklahoma.

The Coffee Bunker is located at 6365 E 41st St, Tulsa, OK 74135.
