Too many in our community struggle to live into their dreams and full potential. Many fight substance abuse; many lack the resources to maintain and stay in their homes; many fall short of the ability to own their own homes; many have no home at all. The mission of Old Pueblo Community Services is to empower people to create a meaningful and self-sufficient life.
We accomplish this through: Housing opportunities; Housing education and counseling; Addiction treatment; Employment support; Life skills education.
Programs: Transitional housing available for up to 200 men, women, and families in nine Tucson locations; supportive services, include structured housing, employability training, life skills education, case management, and substance abuse counseling. Clients served include prisoner re-entry population, homeless veterans, survivors of domestic violence, homeless persons suffering from substance addiction, chronically mentally ill veteran men and women.

I had a long history of subtance abuse, incarceration, and instability. I went to Old Pueblo Community Services (OPCS) after my second incarceration in the Arizona Department of Corrections. I was immediately given food, clothing, and shelter. Once I obtained employment, I was given a voucher to go get any clothing items that I needed from Wal-Mart. Once I completed the program, OPCS rented an apartment for me so that I could re-unify with my two children, and they continued to pay for the apartment for six months while I fixed my credit. A few years later, I went back to OPCS and was able to purchase a home with the assistance of the $22,500 that they put as a down payment. This is the non-profit that others should strive to mimic.
