How You Can Help

Your donations will assist us in exceeding
basic programming and expectations!

Our State funding provides for minimal programming, primarily focused on safety and caregiving. However, The Opportunity Tree is committed to exceeding basic programming expectations and community interactions. Individuals with developmental disabilities often have trouble communicating in conventional ways. Forms of creative expression allow them to express feelings and empowers them with a way to display ideas and vision. Research suggests creative expression and community interaction increases stability, positive identity, and decreases negative behaviors. Your donations will assist us in exceeding basic programming and expectations! See below some ways you can help The Opportunity Tree further our goals.
