It is with a heavy heart that we must close OPICA temporarily. The Mayor of Los Angeles and the Governor of California have urged all adults age 65+ to remain at home.  We know this is a difficult time for our OPICA families and caring staff.  There are no known cases of Coronavirus at OPICA but we want to ensure everyone is safe during this health crisis. 

We will be closed beginning Wednesday, March 18th and projecting to resume services at the end of June, 2020, and will keep you informed if that date should change.  If you need any supportive services during this time, please call OPICA and staff will respond to your inquiry.  In addition, we are exploring telehealth options for some programs and counseling services.  We will post any such program development on our website.

Thank you for your understanding and support during this challenging time.  Your health and safety is our utmost concern.  We look forward to seeing you back at OPICA soon – dancing, singing, making art and enjoying fellowship. 

Be Well,

Mary Michlovich

Executive Director
