"To provide a safe, secure, drug-free, and helpful environment, for the homeless participants to use as a springboard to self-sufficiency and to a productive lifestyle in the community."
The Opportunity House is a well-established non-profit organization serving situationally homeless individuals and families in Northern Solano County. Our organization is funded largely through private donations and social entrepreneurship.
A staffed 24 hour a day shelter provides residents with case management seven days a week, outreach workshops such as parenting classes and job skills, financial accountability through budget plans and income monitoring, and a safe warm environment to call home.
The Opportunity House Thrift Store and Boutique provides financial support to the Shelter. In addition, it supplies needed items and outreach to other social service agencies throughout our hometown.
