Living Opportunities, Inc. was founded in 1974 to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live, work, create, and learn in the community. At Living Opportunities, we have very big dreams. Deep within the soul of this organization, there is an ideal – that the epitome of success is that occasion when the people we are mission-driven to serve will live independently, experience meaningful and rewarding careers, and in that process, become truly self-sufficient.
