To advocate for and to address the physical, psychological, and social needs of persons with disabilities, Consuella Mackey, took over her mothers program after her passing and developed Operation Confidence (OC), a 501 © 3 nonprofit organization that provides specifically targeted support services for this population . Since it’s inception, Operation Confidence has helped 10,000 + individuals with disabilities with wraparound services to assist them to become a productive member of society. Services , such as with but not limited to job preparation / dress for success workshops, job creation and employment opportunities.
Operation Confidence has also 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 recent events were held on the grounds of the historic Los Angeles Sports Arena where all branches of the military and 120 vendors participated.
In 2008, Consuella, Executive Director discovered a large community of homeless Veterans living out of their wheelchairs on the streets of Los Angeles’ Skid Row, many of whom still wore portions of their military uniforms on which were proudly displayed remnants of the American flag. It was at that time she asked the Board of Directors to make a commitment to do its part to help this forgotten population.
Operation Confidence Mission: To provide accessible permanent housing, community and supportive resources to assist homeless veterans with disabilities regain their vocational and personal independence, thereby enabling them to again become socially productive citizens.
