Opportunity Inc. was founded as United Cerebral Palsy of North Central Wisconsin in 1952 by a small group of parents and other concerned individuals to promote awareness and educate the public about cerebral palsy. A landmark decision occurred in 1978 to shift the agency’s focus to serving children and adults with any kind of disability. In 2004, the agency’s name was changed to Opportunity Inc. to better reflect the services we provide and the people we serve. Opportunity has grown from an agency with three staff members providing day services to six clients, to a professional specialized staff providing a wide array of services in multiple counties in Wisconsin.
We are an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
