Brant and Tyler really enjoyed ringing the bell for Salvation Army during the holiday season. They volunteer to help their community and gain so much from it.
Cody and Angel made pies during the holidays for some of the elderly to whom they deliver Meals On Wheels.
They have become friends with some of the people on their route and showed their friendship by baking and delivering the homemade pies. These individuals are a vital part of our community because they share their time and talents volunteering. However, they are also gaining great skills, which assist them in being more independent in their own lives. They participate in services through Community Opportunities.
Community Opportunities has been serving the Lincoln County community for more than 40 years. We provide a variety of supports and services based on the needs of the individual. Services include case management, day program, community inclusion, individual skill development, employment, transition and residential supports. All of our work supports and services focus on assisting people with developmental disabilities to lead healthy and productive lives they choose.
As we celebrate Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, it is important to recognize that individuals with developmental disabilities have the same types of dreams as people without disabilities. Community Opportunities strives to enable individuals with developmental disabilities to live full and productive lives of as part of their community and participate in activities, which they enjoy.
If you would like additional information on Community Opportunities’ programs and services, please call (636) 462-7695.
(March is developmental disabilities awareness month. We will be running a series of articles highlighting the supports and services provided in Lincoln County.)
