Opportunity Enterprises: From our humble beginnings in 1967 teaching ten children with developmental disabilities in a tiny church basement in Valparaiso, Indiana, Opportunity Enterprises has grown into an organization that changes the lives thousands of individuals with disabilities throughout Northwest Indiana.
We serve people with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injuries, severe physical and mental disabilities, Alzheimer’s, dementia, loss of limbs, and other challenges. We support people who are profoundly challenged and have limited mobility as well as those who are higher-functioning and go to work every day. We meet people where they are and challenge them to exceed their own expectations. We care for and support people from birth to death, literally from infancy and young adulthood through their twilight years as senior citizens. Simply put, we help people of all ages and abilities learn, live independently, and work. We’re in the business of Amazing People!
