Get Involved

You can make a difference...

You can make a difference, through your business or as an individual; you can assist us in changing lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

How you can help

We’re about changing the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and we can’t do it without you, so we’re asking you to get involved. There are many ways to support: become a business partner and hire an individual; become a sponsor and underwrite our events; volunteer at the Studio; become an ambassador and spread the word about Living Opps; make a donation; or maybe you have an idea to share with us. Each action is a factor in changing lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

“Working with an employee from Living Opportunities is similar to working with a wonderful co-worker you have yet to imagine. We at the Butler Automotive Group are so fortunate to be a part of the Living Opportunities family.” ―Linda Butler

"The Studio fills me with joy. Every time I walk in there the rest of the world is left behind. I am always inspired when I am there and it makes me smile." ―Pam Bock

Business 

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

Build Your Workforce & Strengthen Your Workplace

As a business partner, you can hire our Job Candidates. Through our customized services we help you to identify specific job needs at your company and match them with our candidate's skills. By connecting your employment opportunities with our candidate's abilities, we provide a WIN-WIN situation for everyone.

We specialize in tailoring part-time 8-20 hour weekly positions which allow your staff to redistribute their current workloads and to focus on the job you originally hired them to do.

Through our talent pool, we will match a qualified individual to fit your employment needs and business culture.

Our services include detailed training and ongoing support provided by our employment specialists - without cost to your company. You only pay the wage of the person that you hire, at the prevailing wage plus payroll taxes.

By partnering with Living Opportunities, you will gain responsible, productive employees who in turn will gain a sense of accomplishment and pride in the work they do with your company.

Together we can provide a WIN-WIN partnership.
