Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people within our community with significant intellectual disabilities, to improve their lives and the lives of their families. It was founded in 1954 by seven families who were determined to give their disabled children the best lives possible.
Opportunity Village is one of the most recognized and respected community rehabilitation programs in the United States. Nevada’s largest employer of people with disabilities, It serves more than 3,000 individuals annually, providing vocational training, employment, habilitation and social recreation programs, and services that make their lives more productive and interesting.
OV citizens – individuals who were previously considered unemployable – work at the charity’s Employment Resource Centers and in jobs throughout the community, collectively earning wages amounting to more than $7.6 million in 2012.
Primarily a self-funded organization, Opportunity Village generates the majority of its operational funding through its employment contracts and fundraising efforts such as the Magical Forest and Great Santa Run, saving Nevada taxpayers $33.7 million annually.
