Homeless Programs and Resources

We are a true community resource providing emergency and permanent housing options and solution-focused support services to over 2,000 unique individuals on average each year.

Love in Action

Each year over 2,000 volunteers come to our shelters to gift over 8,000 hours of their time and talents! We could not accomplish what we do without their selfless compassion.

Who Seeks Our Help?

Your homeless neighbors come from all walks of life and each of them has a unique story! Most of them have experienced a sudden traumatic event in their lives; some have high incidences of mental illness, and/or physical disabilities.

El Paso Giving Day


The Opportunity Center for the Homeless needs your help with our El Paso Giving Day fundraising campaign hosted by the Paso del Norte Community Foundation. EPGD is an online charitable giving campaign designed to shine a light on the essential work of nonprofit organizations and ignite the spirit of giving in the El Paso community.

This year’s Giving Day will be held on October 21, 2021.

Take a pick below to see why your gift will allow us to say “yes” to one more veteran, elderly person, or deserving adult who needs the strength and comfort of the Opportunity Center for the Homeless’s essential services.

Ways to make your donation go further:
Our chosen POWER HOUR will be Thursday, October 21, from 6–7 am. If you make a gift during the Caffeinated Kickoff Power Hour, we can win a bonus prize!
