Our Community Place is located in Harrisonburg’s Northeast Neighborhood, and has been building community and serving those in need for 10 years. We serve over 17,000 hot meals a year to homeless and marginalized persons, and provide laundry and shower services, storage lockers, case management services, volunteer and job training opportunities, empowerment and learning opportunities, help finding employment and housing, referrals for dental and health services, transportation, assistance completing Medicaid applications and renewals, and much more. We host the mobile Suitcase Clinic for medical appointments and access to medications, partner with Strength in Peers to provide mental health and substance use services, place people into housing with Mercy House, and provide a listening ear through volunteer counselors. We also host learning opportunities for local university nursing, psychology, public health policy, social work, and other students. 85% of our food is donated at an annual value of $52,000.

OCP is about loving people, welcoming anyone who walks through our doors, and providing a sense of belonging and hope to people struggling with life’s daily challenges. To that end, OCP is always learning how to be a trauma informed care organization in order to provide a safe and supportive community where people can find healing, build resilience, and be successful at working towards their life goals. Come hang with us and see what OCP is all about!
