As we continue to develop innovative programs for our participants, many are not funded by Medicaid. The majority of our state and federal funding goes to personnel wages, maintenance of our facilities, transportation, insurance, and items required by state regulations governing the health, safety, and welfare for the people we serve.
Due to funding limitations, Opportunity Networks continues to rely on the generous support of individuals and businesses in our local community. Please consider supporting the wonderful work we do by participating, sponsoring or volunteering in our many fundraising events.
In this time of uncertainty, Opportunity Networks hopes you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. The Souhegan Valley Golf Classic’s committee considers the safety and wellbeing of our golfers and volunteers to be our top priority. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the 30th annual Souhegan Valley Golf Classic to October 8, 2020. These are challenging times for us all, and we hope this postponement allows each of you to focus on your priorities as we all continue to navigate the coming months.
Please follow us here at www.opportunitynetworks.org and the Opportunity Networks Facebook page for the most up-to-date information. You can expect the Golf mailer to arrive around August 1st or can reserve your golfer spot or sign up for a sponsorship package online anytime on our website
Opportunity Networks is open and continuing to serve our clients and their families during the COVID-19 crisis by providing essential supports and services. Please follow us on social media (@opportunitynetworks) to see all of our goings-on. From Zumba to cooking, music classes, and more Opportunity Networks is still leading the way in day program offerings in Southern NH. We would also like to take a moment to thank Hitchiner Manufacturing for supporting Opportunity Networks and the Souhegan Valley Golf Classic for the last 30 years. Your commitment to supporting adults who experience life with disabilities is second to none. To all of our sponsors and golfers now more than ever we want to THANK YOU for chipping in to support adults who experience life with a disability.
Opportunity Networks and the Souhegan Valley Golf Classic Committee
For 38 years Opportunity Networks has made a positive impact in the quality of life for hundreds of adults living with disabilities. Today we provide services to 171 individuals from 22 towns in the Southern New Hampshire. We have offices in Amherst, Nashua and Bedford.
We are proud of the programs we offer; daily activities that are varied and creative, a team devoted to finding supported employment for our participants, a dynamic Health & Wellness program, Speech and Communication classes that utilize current technology, and the opportunity to give back to the community through volunteerism.

Research shows that adults with developmental disabilities are at a greater risk of cardiovascular problems than the general population.
At Opportunity Networks, a major focus of our day program is to assist our participants with their overall health and well-being. This race, open to the public, was created to offer our clients an opportunity to train, participant, and complete a race with members of their local community. Our clients not running/walking that day, but who want to be part of this event will be on the course handing out water and cheering on the runners.
With good health, individuals with disabilities have the freedom to work, learn and engage actively in their families and their communities.
