Old Pueblo Community Foundation
January 28, 2013

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.
