About Operation Confidence
Operation Confidence, a 501(c)3 grassroots nonprofit organization, was founded in 1980 and has assisted 10,000+ disabled individuals with wrap-around services to prepare them for mainstream society and employment. In 2009, Consuella Mackey, Exec. Dir. who served on the Union Rescue Advisory Council discovered a large encampment of disabled homeless veterans living in their wheelchairs on the streets of Skid Row in Los Angeles, many still wearing portions of their military uniforms while displaying remnants of the American flag. A commitment was made at that time for Operation Confidence to do its part to help this forgotten population.
