Executive Director Message

Since 1954, Opportunity Village has always set the standard for serving people with intellectual disabilities and their families. Although our mission has remained constant over the years, the services we’ve provided have evolved as the needs of our families have changed. We’ve gone from being a school for people who were not allowed in the public school system to being a top employment and training organization. Opportunity Village prides itself on its ability to adapt, whether that means constantly adding new programs to meet the changing needs of the people we serve or finding new ways to raise needed funds in a struggling economy. Change is good and we are always looking for ways to grow.

The launch of Opportunity Village’s new website is another change for the better. You will find the new website to be more user-friendly with easier access to important information such as how your loved one can receive services from Opportunity Village, how you can donate and get an in-depth look at the special events that spread awareness about our mission. Please take the time to navigate through the site, learn more about the individuals that come to Opportunity Village every day and find out just how much of an impact our organization has on our entire community.

Thank you for your support of Opportunity Village! Without the generosity of this amazing community, we would not be the organization we are today.

Gratefully yours,

Ed Guthrie, Executive Director
