OV Family

Welcome to the OV family! We recognize that as the parent, family member, guardian, friend or supporter of a person with a disability who benefits from the programs at Opportunity Village, you are important members of the OV family. We are honored to share in the care of your loved one, and it is with this spirit of shared responsibility that we focus on family engagement and advocacy.

We want to hear from you, and advocate alongside you for the things you care about. We want to ensure that you are receiving frequent updates on all the latest news, opportunities, and events at OV. We also need your help! In order for Opportunity Village to continue providing the highest quality of care and programming, we need participation from parents, families, guardians, friends, and supporters. We want you to be involved with Opportunity Village!

Whether you are seeking assistance or looking to volunteer for an upcoming event, please reach out to our Family Engagement and Outreach Advocate directly at (702) 262-1514 or by emailing us at advocacy@opportunityvillage.org. We look forward to our continued partnership.
