I have been struck by the depth and breath of activities that Opportunity, Inc have done to help the community- including helping children and young families get off the street and directed towards self sustaining employment and housing. They assist and coordinate with multiple other charitable organizations in the county including transition housing for the homeless and/or children leaving foster homes. Opportunity, Inc helped the local board of health find funding for health care for the homeless.

The residents that graduate from Opportunity place leave with more than just a job and a direction. They leave with a sense of pride.

Opportunity, Inc. provides information on homeless activities in Okaloosa and Walton counties, disseminates grant invitations to its provider members available only through the Continuum, provides the public and members with listing of service and resource material for the homeless and other in need. It is heavily involved in helping the homeless veterans and participates in the veterans standdown offering medical services including wound care and flu shots. We maintain a comprehensive web site for the benefit of the provider members, donor members and the public. www.okaloosawaltonhomeless.org.

My hands on weekly experience with the shelter Dinner Donor Program and actual personal meal preparation once a month keeps me, as Vice Chair of the organization, constantly aware of its successful operation. As Vice Chair I am also intimately involved at the board level and look to developing a broad based community financial support to allow us to grow and keep pace with the ever changing problem of homelessness.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Change the name to more accurately portray, in the public's mind, the function of the organization.
