HOW YOU CAN HELP
Find out how you can be a part of the incredible work we’re doing at Living Opps!
With the combination of a visionary volunteer Board of Directors, a solid leadership team, and dynamic, enthusiastic program staff, Living Opportunities has become the organization others look to for leadership and innovation in Oregon’s disability rights movement. We were recently recognized as one of the Top 100 Nonprofits to Work for in Oregon (again!) and also chosen to mentor nine organizations state-wide through the Employment First Grant Project. This project creates diverse, competitive-wage jobs that people with disabilities can access in their local communities.
Our vision is a welcoming community that embraces individuality and passionately supports and empowers people. Our mission is to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live in the same neighborhoods, work for the same employers, and share in the same experiences to which we all aspire.
