- former ODCC Client
ODCC helped me when I was in a very bad situation in my life. I had nowhere to turn and I had actually given up on life. I entered ODCC in 2021. I stayed at ODCC for 2 months. ODCC helped me get the help that I needed with mental health, doctor appointments, food stamps, state identification, and housing. I thank GOD for ODCC, I am no longer homeless
