2 A LETTER FROM TOM LITWICKI,CEO It is my honor to present this Annual Report in gratitude for your generous support of Old Pueblo Community Services. I have personally dedicated the last 20 years working with persons with severe mental illness, incarcerated in our prisons, with little access to mental health services, discharged to communities with no housing or employment, destined to cycle back through the prison system. I have met people living on our streets with untreated mental illness, coping through the use of substances, often dying from exposure or as the victim of senseless murder. Like Christopher Mazzarella, a Tucson native and Veteran with a long history of mental illness and alcoholism. Christopher was living on the streets when he was murdered and buried at the abandoned De Anza drive-in theater. Or Marsha Powell, a 48-year-old woman, struggling with mental illness and subsequent addiction to drugs, who ended up incarcerated in the state prison for selling her body for drugs on the streets. Marsha died when left in a fenced cage in 107 degree heat for four hours. It doesn t have to be this way! Every day OPCS provides safe, affordable, dignified housing and an opportunity to rebuild their lives to approximately 300 persons who would otherwise be on the streets of Tucson. For as little as $15 a day, Marsha could have been in transitional housing. For as little as $40 per day, Christopher could have received counseling for his addiction while in safe housing. For only $400 per month we can provide housing, food, and an array of psychological and financial supports for one of our neighbors currently living on our streets. This suffering can be avoided! It seems obvious that solutions of housing supports and behavioral health services are needed, yet there are still significant funding shortfalls in Tucson. At OPCS, we receive federal funding for approximately half the clients we serve. However, we accept persons into our communities regardless of their ability to pay for their housing and counseling, resulting in a very tight budget. We are often unable to provide all the supports needed to all who apply. We rely on donors like you to fill this gap. With your donations we are able to provide more than just housing; we can provide a HOME. When you invest in OPCS, you are moving us all closer to a day when you no longer see individuals and families on our streets; a day when you no longer need to look away from veterans suffering from severe mental illness and addiction. A day in which Marsha and Christopher do not die needlessly on our streets or in our institutions, but rather live peaceful and satisfying lives, giving back to others, as you have given to them. THANK YOU!

3 OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE In 2013, Old Pueblo Community Services was restructured with the incorporation of Old Pueblo Group, OPCS and OPHD as subcorporations. While we are determined to remain true to our foundation, OPG looks to the future with renewed energy and vision. New milestones were reached, shared with you in this report. Old Pueblo Group Vision Statement We envision a future in which all have the opportunity to reside in safe affordable housing and live meaningful, self-defined, dignified lives, as part of a healthy, inclusive community. Old Pueblo Community Services Mission Statement Our mission is to support those in our community who are currently struggling with addiction, homelessness, and mental health concerns, by providing dignified supportive housing options, behavioral health counseling, employment coaching and peer support. We serve those often forgotten and underserved in our community, including homeless veterans, persons returning from incarceration, and those experiencing long term chronic homelessness. Old Pueblo Housing Development Mission Statement We transform the lives of the families we serve by helping them achieve the dream of home ownership through education, down payment assistance, and construction of new homes. Additionally we support families struggling to maintain the dream of home ownership by rehabilitating houses, advocating for families facing foreclosure, and advising families on all issues related to housing. In order to remain relevant, efficient and continue to meet the needs of the community, many steps were taken in 2014 to combine the housing and counseling staffs, uniting them as the integrated Recovery Community Team structure. Each Recovery Community team now includes a program manager, case manager(s), counselor, BHT, PRSS and case aide as needed. Each team works together to provide the best possible case management for each clients who resides in one of our Recovery Communities. This holistic approach has given way to increased communication and cooperation between staff and clients toward a better outcome for all. Milestones In 2013 and 2014, OPCS went through a great deal of change and expansion including: Retirement of Nick and Leah Jones, Founder/CEO and Director of Transitional Housing Appointment of Tom Litwicki, M.Ed., as CEO Appointment of Terry Galligan as COO Opened new Community Pathways to Recovery (CPR) program starting services inside Arizona Department of Correction complexes Staff expansion to over 75 employees and growing Implementation of ClaimTrack, a new Electronic Health Records system Purchase of a 2014 Ford 15-passenger van for homeless Veterans thanks to funding provided through United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona Purchase and renovation of an 11th Recovery Community for a new Veterans Assistance program, SARRTP (Substance Abuse Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program) Reinstated the Inside Out Recovery Partnership (IORP) with Pima County Behavioral Health leading to Phase II of its incarnation Received new funding from the US Department of Justice for the One Step at a Time (OSAT 2015) Mentor program to roll out in early 2015 OPCS was awarded the Tucson Metro Chamber Copper Cactus Award in the Tucson Electric Power Charitable Non Profit Business category for budgets of $5,000,000 and up
