Mission Moments

Clients, staff, volunteers – they are what Opportunity Village is all about.

Each one has a unique story about why they chose to be a part of OV, what OV means to them, and the difference OV has had in each of their lives. We like to capture what we call “Mission Moments” to better tell their story.

Additionally, we ask that the Opportunity Village staff embody what we call   THE OV WAY  :Connections, Development, Enthusiasm, Productivity and Stewardship. You will see this come through in not only staff Mission Moments, but also in our OV Way pillar videos you can view on the Careers page.

“The best part about working at OV is knowing that our work contributes and gives opportunities for the clients. I like that (the organization) is community-based and very inclusive of everyone.”
