Mission Statement

OPCC and Lamp Community end homelessness of Los Angeles' most vulnerable individuals, Primarily adults with mental illness, through a continuum of services and housing, enabling them to reach their highest level of self-sufficiency and community integration. OPCC and Lamp achieve one of the highest success rates in the nation for ending homelessness - more than 95% of the people we house stay housed for one year or more.

Description

We help people living with severe mental illness move from streets to homes. OPCC and Lamp offer immediate access to affordable, safe and permanent housing without requiring sobriety or participation in treatment. Once settled in their home, new tenants are surrounded with customized services such as mental health treatment, drug recovery, healthcare, budgeting, visual and performing arts, job opportunities, and other supports to help them achieve their goals and become a part of their community.

by Dalia L. from Los Angeles, CA (May 19, 2015)
I believe that more people need to engage in global citizenship. Many people forget that homeless individuals are a group of human beings who have struggled to find a place in our society. I have studied homelessness through school and have learned that many people attribute negative stereotypes to homeless people without actually knowing the facts. In fact, for my intercultural communications class I was assigned to a group to present a presentation on way we can achieve social justice. My groups members and I decided to talk about homelessness in America to provided statistics and options on how to help homeless people. The essence of this presentation was seen when my other classmates came to the relization that they tend to look past homeless individuals. Therefore, if everyone took the time out of their day to help someone who is less fortunate than they are they should. This organization is doing something great for homeless individuals and deserve to have more volunteers.
