Among the many other great accomplishments that Rev. Sullivan attained in his lifetime, the Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) has been one of the most influential at the community level. His principle of "self-help" is the cornerstone of what OIC stands for today. A center that offers "A Hand Up, not a hand out" to millions of people across the world regardless of race. It is an institution that continues to be the leader in providing education, training, and support services to those that are disadvantaged, unemployed, underemployed, insufficiently skilled or who have discretions in their background that make finding a job and being self-suffient difficult.
