Kendall Whittier


 The Kendall Whittier neighborhood - located between University of Tulsa and downtown and bordered by BNSF Railroad, 11th Street, Harvard and Utica - will be the strategic focus area for Tulsa Habitat for Humanity. There are approximately 300 vacant lots in the area and many condemned and substandard houses. The Kendall-Whittier community redevelopment strategy, led by Growing Together Tulsa, includes public, private and non-profit partners focused on education, economic development, sustainability, infrastructure, job creation and much more. Joining forces with numerous partners all focused on the common mission of redeveloping the Kendall-Whittier neighborhood allows us to focus on building quality and affordable homes.
