Mission and Vision
We have one mission: Maximizing Potential for People with Disabilities.
A community where people with dis-abilities participate in satisfying employment and lifestyles based on the same aspirations as all citizens.
– PROGRAM OVERVIEW –
Opportunity Connections is a private,
non-profit organization that has been serving people in the Columbia Gorge since 1967. We help individuals with developmental disabilities to live as independently as possible while working and enjoying activities in their own communities. We serve people in Hood River, Wasco and Sherman Counties.
We help with all aspects of home needs and community life. We work with employers to make part-time positions available that are beneficial to both them and the employer. Our residential service offers 24-hour care in a group home setting. We also provide assistance to people in their own homes to live independently in safe and healthy environments.
Community engagement is an increasing priority and Opportunity Connections has responded by focusing on all aspects of interaction from outings and cultural activities to employment opportunities. Art work in many forms produced by Opportunity Connect clients is sold throughout the community as well as at the Community activity hubs located in The Dalles and Hood River.
