Make a Difference
When you make a gift to OHRA, you are helping change someone’s life because OHRA is dedicated to helping people in housing/financial or other crises find a path to stability. When you donate, you can feel good knowing that your gift not only supports individuals, but also makes your community a better place to live. You can be part of something bigger — The OHRA Center. Gifts large and small have the power to keep this vital community resource thriving for any neighbor in need. Together we can do this.
OHRA’s mission is to help low-income people build better lives. By offering hope and access to social services, we encourage those in need on the path to self-sufficiency.
Our approach is different. Skilled resource navigators work with anyone in need—whether housed or unhoused without enrollment in any program. They help guests navigate the maze of social services, get help from partner agencies, and achieve their goals. Whether someone walks in the door of our Resource Center, is a guest at our year-round Shelter, or uses the Shower Trailer, a resource navigator is there.
At the Resource Center, OHRA’s navigators help individuals and families avoid eviction, find a job, apply for benefits, access physical and mental health services, and more.
OHRA’s Shelter offers a safe place to sleep and help getting on the path to self-sufficiency. The OHRA shelter is a low-barrier, non-congregate, fully-staffed shelter open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
OHRA’s Shower Trailer fills an essential need for those living without shelter.
