Tours of The Center
After the speakers and the ribbon cutting, attendees were able to go on guided touras of The OHRA Center and see the vision for the space as well as learn more about OHRA’s programs and services.
Training and conference room
The upstairs training and conference room will provide space for OHRA to have staff training, board meetings, and also invite community partners to hold meetings in this space.
A shelter guest room
When neighbors in need stay at The OHRA Shelter, this is what a room looks like. Guests have private bathrooms, mini fridges, microwaves, beds, and more. This is where people begin their journey to stability and we are so honored to provide this space to them and walk alongside them.
Thank you so much to everyone who came to celebrate OHRA. It was so wonderful to see so many of the volunteers and former board members who helped make OHRA the organization it is today. We stand on your shoulders. Thank you!
