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.

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.
