It Takes a "Village"
Known for its casinos and other entertainment venues, Las Vegas is also the home of Opportunity Village, a non-profit that improves the lives of people with intellectual disabilities in southern Nevada. Opportunity Village, which serves more than 3,000 people annually, offers vocational training, community employment, day services, advocacy, arts, and social recreation. Founded in 1954, the organization operates three employment training center campuses, a thrift store, and a vehicle donation program. Opportunity Village also hosts popular events such as the annual Magical Forest and the Las Vegas Great Santa Run.
