Our Giving November annual campaign provides critical operating funds for programs and key initiatives.  Donations support more community integration, more vocational experiences and skill building and more paid employment through our social enterprise operations.  Can you help us reach $65,000 and be one of 250 donors to the campaign? 


To help illustrate the impact and importance of your support, we created the “World of a Warrior” video series*, which highlights our 2018 Warrior of the Year Eliza.  We look at the things she brings to and gets out of her active participation in Opportunity Knocks programs from a variety of angles.  

This four-part series looks at the overall spectrum of social, vocational, wellness, community, and life skill opportunities available to Eliza and her peers through OK involvement as well as the impact of OK on Eliza’s family’s quality of life.
