Opportunity Partners

Mission Statement

Together we advance the quality of life for people with disabilities.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments In 2020, Opportunity Partners served 1,300 people with disabilities at job sites, residences and community settings throughout the 10-county Twin Cities Metropolitan area. OP supported 76 people seeking competitive, integrated jobs, with 28 job placements. OP supported 180 people in job retention services through the most crucial times of the pandemic. The organization also successfully transitioned 54 people from a provider that closed into OP employment services. The average wage for people working competitive jobs was $14.54 per hour. OP is accredited through CARF International, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. In 2020, OP was reaccredited for a period of three years for its community employment services. This was the ninth consecutive three-year accreditation awarded to OP, representing the highest level of accreditation and showing a substantial conformance to high quality standards. In 2020, OP earned a Community Enrichment Award from the Minnesota Organization for Habilitation and Rehabilitation for its service that supports small groups of people in community activities. The organization provided residential services to 274 people with disabilities. 170 were people in their own homes, 26 in its supported apartment program and 78 people in one of OP’s 20 group homes. OP expanded its apartment program to a third location, Minnetonka, in 2020. As a result of COVID-19, OP temporarily halted its day services in March 2020, resulting in a significant decrease in revenues. The operational and financial impact continued when day services reopened later in the year at limited capacity. New virtual services were offered, serving about 100 people.
