Review for Okaloosa Walton Homeless Continuum of Care Opportunity, Inc., Fort Walton Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.

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.
