We believe that everyone deserves the chance to pursue and achieve their dreams.

We provide resources that create positive individual change and uplift entire communities.

The resources include education, training, skills development, mentoring, counseling, employment placement, charitable contributions and community service.

Opportunity Now works to reduce recidivism, encourage and equip people with disabilities to achieve self-sufficiency, prepare at-risk students for better futures and close the workforce gaps of local employers.

Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS)

We provide students with core skills training to prepare them for obtaining and maintaining employment. The training also reinforces positive decision making and effective social skills.

Work Readiness Training

We provide students with core skills training to prepare them for obtaining and maintaining employment. The training also reinforces positive decision making and effective social skills.

Opportunity Now is also responsible for employment development which begins while the participants are still incarcerated.

We teach students the importance of knowing and understanding their rights, how to assertively advocate for themselves, and the steps to becoming more independent and self-sufficient.

Self-Advocacy

Under LRS, Opportunity Now works with individuals who have certain barriers such as a physical or mental disability (including alcoholism and substance abuse) to help them become self sufficient and find adequate employment.  Our job is to advocate on their behalf.

We provide students with the resources to gain an awareness of the wide range of career pathway options and labor market realities. Students assess skills and interests, identify and explore occupations of interest, set obtainable career goals and develop effective strategies to achieve those goals.

Career Exploration

Opportunity Now conducted its very first “reverse job fair” in May 2019. This event allowed our consumers to meet with one employer to discuss job and training opportunities within the company. APACHE Industries was the employer chosen as our “pilot.”

Opportunity Now employs lead instructors who provide a variety of in-class teaching methods to keep students engaged and receptive to the information being presented.

Classroom Training

We provide students with core skills training to prepare them for obtaining and maintaining employment. The training also reinforces positive decision making and effective social skills.
In order to move from theory to application our students are exposed to workplace opportunities. This is even more critical for students with disabilities because they face additional barriers to self-sufficiency that traditional students may not.

Employment Opportunities

We provide students with core skills training to prepare them for obtaining and maintaining employment. The training also reinforces positive decision making and effective social skills.

Our Vision is to engage and empower our Consumers to determine their own futures, encourage their peers to drive themselves, and their communities, toward self-awareness and self-sufficiency.
