We love OCPD. We work together to care for the most vulnerable. They are such a blessing to us. Yesterday, they brought someone to us in need of food, and immediate services. We had already closed, but we were able to provide them with food. We also happened to be open for emergency warming overnight shelter, so she was able to return in the evening for a hot meal and a peaceful, safe place to stay out of the severely cold weather. It was a wonderful connection to make. She returned this morning, received a shower and clean clothes. She met with our resource manager and we were able to get her off the streets this afternoon. She was placed in a hotel room to keep her safe and away from large congregate sheltering during the winter. While staying there she would receive services to help her work towards her own sustainability.
