OIC of America

Support Our Work

Our Organization

In 1964, Reverend Leon H. Sullivan founded the first OIC training center in an abandoned jailhouse in North Philadelphia. The dilapidated building was renovated using donations from people in the community and an anonymous grant. These programs were quickly replicated in cities across the United States. Today the OIC of America Network:

• Consists of 38 affiliates, located in 22 different states

• Employs nearly 1000 employees nationwide

• Invests nearly $100 million in workforce development and self-sufficiency programs each year

• Dedicates 87% of funds towards programs

• Serves nearly 100,000 participants through 150 active programs each year

• Delivers job training, to equip approximately 20% of program participants for the workforce; with a 75% and 70% completion and placement rate respectively.

• Who we serve: 54% African American, 28% Latino, 9% White, and 60% Women
