Your gift helps bring these vital support services to the people we serve and their families. Please make your gift today!
Door to Door Transportation
Opportunities, Inc. is unique among providers, providing safe and convenient transportation for the people we support, free of charge.
Family Support Services
Opp Inc.’s volunteer-led Parent/Guardian Support Group, initiated during the pandemic, offers families the chance to gather together, supporting each other and work with the administration of Opportunities Inc. to improve the lives of the people we support.
Donations underwrite scholarships for special classes – art, dance, music – so everybody who wants to participate in these enrichment activities can!
Community Integration Services
We are working to reconnect with our community partners, the businesses and nonprofits where the people we support provided excellent remunerated work and volunteer services. Opportunities, Inc. receives no reimbursement dollars for the time and planning for these activities.
We believe in supporting the entrepreneurial spirit! Throughout the pandemic, we have worked one-on-one with selected participants to help them pursue their own vision of work – baking for a Farmer’s Market, knitting, starting a paper shredding business, videography, photography, as well as connecting people to all the bookkeeping resources necessary to run a business. These are just a handful of the activities we worked on together.
