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.
Souhegan Valley Golf Classic
This year, Opportunity Networks hosted our 30th Souhegan Valley Golf Classic & Live Auction fundraiser presented by Hitchiner Manufacturing. The Golf Tournament took place on Thursday, June 10th at the Amherst Country Club. It was a wonderful day filled with tons of fun!
Our charity golf tournament and live auction attracts many golfers from the Southern New Hampshire Community. It is considered one of the area’s premiere charity golf tournaments and is a day filled with great food, great golf, and a live auction at the end of the day.
The proceeds from this event provides much needed financial support to our agency. Opportunity Networks provides job opportunities, training and support, as well as life skills, health and wellness programs, and social opportunities to adults living with disabilities in the Southern New Hampshire area. Our clients want to succeed and be a part of their community, and at Opportunity Networks, we strive to assist them in doing just that.

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.
