Welcome to the photo gallery.  Below you will find pictures from both OPCC and Lamp Community’s various programs and projects, and pictures from the Community Model Training Institutes.

Established in 1983, Turning Point Transitional Housing is a 55-bed shelter for homeless men and women that offers housing and supportive services for up to 9 months.
The project seeks to break the cycle of homelessness and to integrate homeless individuals back into the community by providing comprehensive, individualized services designed to address their physical and emotional needs.

In addition to an individual sleeping area, three meals a day and clothing, Turning Point provides intensive case management, counseling and support groups, specialized programs such as job counseling, money management, health education, computer classes and independent living skills.

The first Community Model Training Institutes were held in January and February 2005.  Fifty-five people attended, representing over 20 service, housing, and government agencies from Southern California.  For specific information on the Training Institutes or to download some of the training documents, please visit the Training Institutes page.

Nationally recognized for its community approach,Lamp Community is a non-profit organization based in Los Angeles, providing holistic, integrated housing and support services for homeless men and women living with serious mental illness.

Established in 1985, Lamp Community has evolved into a safety net for homeless men and women who were formerly without hope. Lamp Community offers meals, housing, health recovery, job training and other support services in nine service portals, to over 4,000 individuals annually.

The Lamp Art Project, recipient of the 2004 Eli Lilly Company Welcome Back Award, offers esteeming, life-enhancing expressions to adults challenged with a mental illness. The Lamp Art Project has evolved into a professional level art studio serving beginners to highly advanced artists with the same degree of respect and empowerment.
