Self-Advocacy Starts Here
The OPT program is made up of a variety of support systems and services that connect clients to a thriving network of people and opportunities. The key to OPT is our clients’ choice—by providing the space and self-determination for our clients to choose what’s reasonably best for them, they can “opt” to do what fulfills them across a broad range of services, from community connections to employment opportunities.
OPT: A Path Forward
Services provided through OPT include community resource awareness, self-advocacy, career exploration at small, local businesses, community integration, social connections, and volunteerism. Through OPT, our clients can choose their path and form an inclusive community.
OPT focuses on:
- Creating meaningful relationships
- Uncovering individual talents and passions to allow them to thrive in their community
- Decreasing social isolation and the many problems that come with it
- Developing “soft skills”
- Making 1-on-1 connections
