Who We Serve
In a typical year, MHP serves approximately 160 teen girls and 70 infants and young children. Since our founding in 1968 in Tulsa, the Margaret Hudson Program has met the needs for over 10,000 girls, ages 11 to 19, and their young children from 2 weeks to 2 years old.
There is no charge for teens to attend school at the Margaret Hudson Program. MHP’s comprehensive programs are offered on two academic campuses, in partnership with Tulsa and Broken Arrow Public Schools.
