The Opportunity Center for the Homeless (OC) consists of two homeless shelters, one for single adult men and one for single adult women, and seven residential centers for the elderly, single women (2), mentally ill, veterans, and men and women in school/work programs.
Please visit their OC Living Centers page for more information about each program!
“The Opportunity Center exists for all homeless without distinction of race, ethnic origin, gender, language spoken, or, religious beliefs, and regardless of mental, drug and alcohol problems. Through direct contact with the homeless, the Center supports them to move beyond their condition if they are capable; or protects them if they cannot improve their condition in society because of emotional or psychological disorders. To this end, the Opportunity Center operates a day resource center/emergency overflow night shelter where homeless people can gather and where some members of the El Paso Coalition for the Homeless provide on-site services. The Center also strives to create a system of care for the neediest among this population through the development of transitional and long-term supportive housing.”
