SUPPORT THE WARRIORS
Opportunity Knocks is an Illinois 501c.3 non-profit organization that serves young people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) through social, recreational and life-skills programming.
The people we serve are Warriors and it is our belief that their place in the community is both valuable and necessary. We envision a community where individuals with developmental disabilities have an active and supported presence.
Our socially interactive programming places consistent emphasis on the value of self-advocacy and community integration. The goal is to provide opportunities for self-enrichment in the life of the Warrior, in turn giving the Warrior an opportunity to enrich the community.
