Opportunity Inc. is dedicated to serving those in need in our area. Those in the community feel comfortable referring anyone to the organization for a variety of needs and they work hard to ensure the needs are met. They work closely with all the other agencies and churches in the community to coordinate services and provide resources to both clients and partners.

Opportunity, Inc. is an exceptional program. The social workers and members of this organization truly care about the people they are helping. They have made it a personal goal to help get people back on their feet and into their own home. I know several of the social workers personally, and they continually impress me with their empathy and passion to create a better world. Long days and nights are spent negotiating with landlords, and employers in the hopes of getting homeless families into a home. This program empowers the homeless to lead better lives by giving them hope that they will have a place to sleep and live.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Friends of family members who were able to find a better living situation after being helped by Opportunity, Inc.

Ways to make it better...

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

Increase their budget and encourage them to pay their social workers (and give them health benefits!) more for their long hours and hard work. It would also be wonderful if they had a 'pay it forward' program where people who have been helped by Opportunity, Inc, would return the favor by volunteering their time.

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.
