Review for Handicap Village dba Opportunity Village, Clear Lake, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Opportunity Village is such an AMAZING place with AMAZING people!!!:) My sister, Mary, moved into Opportunity Village in the Fall of 1985; during which I went off to college too. It was called "Handicap Village" then, but Mary called it "Handicap College", because that is where you go when you finish high school, she is just adorable:) Everyone was going through adjustments, but Opportunity Village so eased the transition for Mary and our family. She has an extraordinary life there. It is so much better than if she would have stayed home with my parents or even with one of her siblings, because she has her own life and is given experiences that she would have missed other wise. I know it makes my mom sad at times when Mary says she is ready to go home, but I know it gives all of us peace knowing that Mary has this spectacular home with such an incredible family that loves her at Opportunity Village. Our family feels so blessed by Opportunity Village.
