Programs and Services

At Orpe Human Rights Advocates, we are committed to caring for people of all backgrounds who need a hand up to get on their feet. We do so through programs that provide housing and assistance to veterans, mothers struggling with addiction, individuals returning from prison and families in need. We are more than a nonprofit. We are a ministry of service dedicated to helping those in need reach their full potential.

Landing Hand Wherever We are Needed! And Taking Action in Whatever comes to Hand.

Our mission goes wherever human dignity is compromised, and we take action in whatever comes to hand. these words define the DNA of the Orpe Human Rights Advocates. Here, where we can find the essence of our legacy of responding to the needs of homeless men and families, veterans, men returning from prison, people with disabilities, elderly and those searching for affordable housing. Our organization is strengthened by the commitment of hundreds of employees, volunteers and partners working toward real change.

AID PROGRAMS FOR VETERANS

We work hard to give back to those who have given so much. Veterans returning from service face unique challenges during their transition to civilian life. By surrounding veterans with an environment that provides them with a solid foundation, we help them become productive members of our community. We are building the bridge from their past service in the military to a successful civilian life. We also secure housing and assist veterans in finding long-term employment and job training.

BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

We empathize with individuals struggling with mental health and substance use disorders, as well as their families. With emergency addiction treatment services, programs geared towards prevention, and ongoing care for survivors, it is possible for men, women, teens, and children to find the support they need.

GENERAL HOUSING

We believe in finding the right homes for those who need it most. We work hard to end homelessness by addressing the specific needs of every family and individual we serve. A home is more than four walls and a roof. It is a foundation on which a person builds to reach their full potential.
