Operation Confidence was founded in 1980. Our mission is to advocate for people with disabilities, provide dress for success/job preparation workshops and host community outreach events that include job fairs.
Operation Confidence's staff were at one time able-bodied but due to an accident caused them to have to use a wheelchair or other mobility devices. Despite their limitations they are considered mentors and role models.
Concerned about the overwhelming number of soldiers returning home from Iraqi and Afghanistan with a physical disability, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Operation Confidence was compiled to do its part to help.
In August, 2010, Operation Confidence hosted United We Serve/One Nation/One People Fair that focused on honoring our fallen and disabled solider's. All all branches of the US Military along with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department Explorer Scouts participated.
