OUR MISSION IS TO HELP WOMEN AND FAMILIES, WHO ARE HOMELESS, ACHIEVE SELF-SUFFICIENCY.

Programs & Services

Opportunity Place Inc., exists for one reason and one reason only and that is to help women and families with minor children who are homeless become self-sufficient. We do this by providing a safe and secure haven, food, clothing, basic needs, case management, connecting parents and children to all possible resources in the community and focusing on the well-being of the family as a whole. When a parent knows their children are safe (not living in the woods or in a car); fed nutritious meals, able to bathe and have clean clothes and will be connected to educational, socialization, and mental/medical/emotional health programs - they are able to focus on their own challenges and barriers. They are able to look for a sustainable job; secure additional skills and find affordable housing. They are able to become a healthy, supportive family unit for which the children are able to thrive.

Core Services...

Becoming homeless is not difficult. A broken leg, a lost job, or a divorce can make the difference between housed or homeless. The hard part is finding your way back. Transitioning back to self-sufficiency requires, at minimum:

+ Provide safe and secure temporary emergency housing.
+ Provide case management to include needs assessments, the formation of Personal Service Plans, personal budgets, and resumes; assistance securing sustainable employment, affordable housing, transportation, childcare, and medical, mental and emotional services.
+ Address the basic and individual human needs of clients at enrollment, during stay and upon exiting the program.
+ Connect clients with mainstream, community, faith-based, and public resources/services.
+ Provide enhanced follow-up services.

Community Services...

+ Distribute food and products to local residents and connect those in need to community resources and services.
