To advocate for and address the physical and social needs of persons with disabilities, Consuella Mackey, took over her mothers' program after her passing and developed Operation Confidence (O.C), a 501 © 3 nonprofit organization. Since it’s inception the organization has assisted 10,000 + individuals with wraparound services to better them becoming productive members of society. Services, such as with but not limited to job preparation/dress for success workshops, job creation and employment opportunities.
OC has hosted job fairs and community outreach events throughout the city of Los Angeles for over 25 years partnering with Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and government agencies. Two such events took place on the grounds of the historical Los Angeles Sports Arena where all branches of the military and 120 vendors participated.
In 2009, Consuella discovered a large encampment of veterans living out of their wheelchairs on the streets of Skid row in Los Angeles. Many of whom still wore portions of their military uniforms while others proudly displayed remnants left of the American flag. It was at that time Consuella asked the Board of Directors for a commitment to do its part to help our forgotten American heroes.
Operation Confidence is pleased to announce the "AMERICAN'S INVISIBLE HEROES" on LA Talk Facebook Live and LA Talk Internet Radio, each Sunday from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. PST.
