Welcome to Greater Opportunities
Serving persons with developmental disabilities.
Greater Opportunities provides adults living with developmental disabilities the opportunity to live their lives with dignity as independently as possible. We provide care-giving, education, and life skills in our Day Program, Supported Living Services, and Independent Living Services. The people we serve are often living at or below the poverty level and Greater Opportunities provides a quality of care and compassion that would not be available otherwise.
We invite you to make a donation to Greater Opportunities. Your transaction is secure and appreciated.
You can help make the hopes and dreams of people with developmental disabilities a reality.
Your contribution will enable Greater Opportunities to create their unique pathway to success. Make a significant gift of opportunity – $25, $50, $100, or more – whatever you can afford to share during this holiday season.Learn More

Akhom enjoys that every day working for Greater Opportunities brings new life lessons, “There are always different challenges, new things to do everyday, new things to learn; we learn from each other. It’s not just me teaching our clients, often they teach me, too. It’s a fun place to work.”Read Full Story
Margie says SLS is a great program because of the independent living skills she’s learned, and she’s grateful everyday because Yesinia is there for her and her daughter.
“Everyone should come to Cortez; they will love it. You’ll learn how to cook, you’ll learn about safety, and how to keep your apartment clean. You will have someone to talk to, to comfort you, and if you’re sad there’s always someone there.”
Andrew loves that he has so many different options and activities as a resident of the Cortez Apartments and he’s grateful for all the friends he’s met. Looking back on how much his life has improved, he says he doesn’t know what he would do without Greater Opportunities.
