Housing is the first intervention when moving a person from homelessness or incarceration back into the community. The goal is to meet basic needs, such as for shelter from weather conditions, and to offer a sense of personal security, privacy and personal space. At OPCS, we provide quality housing that is safe, clean, inviting and supportive.
OPCS housing is provided at ten Communities located in central Tucson. Housing is assigned based on the program which best meets the clients needs. Recovery Communities are typically apartment complexes with:
- Shared a one or two-bedroom, furnished apartments
- A full kitchen, bathroom and living area
- Air conditioning and television
- Communities are equipped with laundry facilities
- Apartments include kitchen utensils, towels and bedding
- Each community has pleasant outdoor spaces, designated smoking areas and group meeting space.
OPCS receives weekly donations of food and frequent donations of clothing which are shared with each community, based on number of residents at any given time. Residents are ultimately responsible for their meal preparation.
Some OPCS Recovery Communities are gender specific, others are open to both men and women. Couples are accommodated in specific programs. Transgender individuals are welcome in all OPCS housing and are assigned residency based on the gender with which they identify.
All communities are located near Tucson bus stops and convenient to groceries, pharmacies, and other community resources. Addresses are not published for the protection of our clients.
