I became aware of My Possibilities when my son decided to move back to Dallas. He had worked several years at Opportunity Village in Las Vegas which is also a great nonprofit specializing in continuing education for adults with disabilities. Michael met with the Board of Directors and described his vision of what they could become. They made him the Executive Director that day. Now it is three years later and My Possibilities have just moved into their new building, and what a building it is. There is nothing like it in North Texas. And the Staff are amazing! Every Hipster genuinely enjoys their time there. And the future is going to be even better. Just visit the My Possibility facilities and see for yourself. But beware, if you do, you will be hooked!
