Community Opportunities Club

Experiencing good days with good friends for more than 15 years

Experiencing good days with good friends for more than 15 years! The Community Opportunities Club supports adults who have been impacted by a physical disability or brain injury to regain the confidence and independence needed to lead more productive and active lives. Goodwill operates three community-based drop-in centers that develop and provide activities based on individual interests and needs. Our participants may choose a variety of opportunities to improve life skills through vocational referrals, health and wellness activities, arts and enrichment classes, community integration and volunteer opportunities.  The result of this selection of structured and self-directed activities is enriched lives and lifelong friendships with others who understand their situation. Our unique approach to empowerment allows peer groups the opportunity to pursue their own endeavors, providing valuable social-skill development.  What is gained is something wonderful — a renewed sense of self-worth, community reintegration, and the highest possible level of independence.
