Empowerment Circles

It is only with the support of many generous donors that OPCC is able reach thousands of individuals in need every year. We have created the OPCC Empowerment Circles program as a way to say thank you. Your contributions help us sustain the services that we are proud to offer to more than 4,000 people each year as we help them overcome the challenges of poverty, homelessness, domestic violence and mental illness, and begin their journeys back to self-sufficiency.

On behalf of all of us at OPCC, including the people we serve, thank you for actively helping us save lives, one person at a time.

For information on OPCC’s Empowerment Circles and how you can become a member, please contact  Chris Boone at cboone@opcc.net.
