Opening Minds. Changing Lives. Together.

Vince has a dream. At 33 he aspires to enroll in an online college to pursue his passion for writing poetry. He is making progress on fulfilling his dream by working and saving money.

Landing an independent job at McDonald's was a big step for Vince. He has lived with the effects of a traumatic brain injury for most of his life, caused by a fall down the basement stairs as a child.

Your support helps to give Vince the tools and resources he needs to be successful. He has been involved with OP employment programs for several years, working at center-based jobs and community Supported Employment Teams. Each experience gave him more skills and the confidence he needed to get hired at his recent independent job. As his managers recognized his potential, the opportunities expanded. He has even earned the Employee of the Month recognition.

"Everyone looks to me for help. I'd like to be here for a while", remarks Vince.

Your gift supports person-centered services based on the unique needs of each individual and what he or she wants in their life.

Thank you for making a gift to Opportunity Partners. Together we are advancing the quality of life for people with disabilities.
