Transitional Living

When you think of transitional housing, do you automatically think of the so-called “halfway house?”  STOP RIGHT THERE - Old Pueblo Community Services is NOT A HALFWAY-HOUSE.  In fact, Transitional Living at OPCS offers a alcohol and drug-free community of top-quality, multi-resident housing locations, providing a structured living environment enhanced by a rich, well-balanced assortment of support services.  These services give each client the opportunity to recovery from addiction and reenter the community with a foundation in recovery, employment and permanent housing. 

OPCS operates ten low-barrier shelter and transitional living properties in Tucson, with a bed capacity of approximately 300 beds and welcomes men, women and families reentering the community from incarceration, combat, the streets, hospitalization, treatment, and/or detoxification – people with a strong desire to change the course of their lives. Programs offer each person in a program the opportunity to personalize their plan towards independence to meet their individual needs. Working closely with multiple federal, city, county and community partners, we are able to offer an array of enhanced and graduated supportive services, which include:

  • Well-furnished housing units with all the comforts of home
  • Properties located near city bus lines
  • Individualized case management
  • Staff on site 24 hours for support and guidance
  • Substance abuse counseling and recovery support
  • Employability skills training
  • Employment placement
  • Family reunification
  • Assistance with obtaining public benefits
