Opportunity Village Northwest Campus and Betty’s Village North

A new inclusive community for people of diverse abilities, coming soon

Opportunity Village’s first residential community for people of diverse abilities, Betty’s Village, was filled to capacity within five months of opening in June 2021. Betty’s Village North would help relieve the current waiting list of hundreds of people. Since moving in, Betty’s Village residents have seen marked impacts on their quality of life, including increased socialization, safety, and educational opportunities. It also gives families peace of mind, answering the question of who will care for your child when you’re not able.

The Northwest Campus project is located at intersection of North Thom and Rome boulevards, just off North Decatur Blvd. and the I-215. It’s expected to break ground in October 2024, then take between 18 months to two years to complete. The full, 17.6-acre Northwest Community Center and Residential project has an estimated project cost of $59 million. Will you help us reach our goal?

Betty’s Village North will include one- and two-bedroom apartments, and four-bedroom homes, providing over 125 residents with accessible and affordable housing. The gated community features front-porch living, security cameras, onsite security with a direct line for residents, and textured front patio areas to help with transitioning for vision impaired residents. Walking and bike paths run throughout the community.

The new Northwest Campus will include an Opportunity Village thrift store, park, and program space. The campus construction will begin during phase two of the project.

To encourage self-determination for those with disabilities, each Betty’s Village North resident requiring independent living support will choose from a list of certified and vetted community residential providers for direct support services. On-site staff will provide concierge services to connect residents with service providers, community resources, state agencies, and family caregivers. The community will include adults with and without disabilities, and provides living arrangements that will span the spectrum of people living independently without supports to residents that require a higher level of care, including 24-hour services from direct support professionals and nurses.
