For more than 60 years, Opportunity Village has provided services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. A recently announced expansion is welcome news to hundreds of locals currently on a wait list for the nonprofit’s services.
OV’s fourth campus, at Decatur Boulevard and Elkhorn Road, will replace the current North Campus at 4180 W. Craig Road. It will be modeled after the Ralph and Betty Engelstad Campus on Buffalo Drive and will include an employment resource center, a fine/performing arts complement, Pride and Enable programs and a life-learning park.
The City of Las Vegas facilitated construction of the new location, with a 17-acre land transfer. Opportunity Village expects to break ground in fall 2017.
