Supporting People with Disabilities Since 1956

Our Direct Support Professionals take the people we serve out into the community twice a day, doubling our efforts from last year – and we need YOUR help to do it! The price of gas, vehicle maintenance, and mileage reimbursement are unavoidable expenses, and as a nonprofit organization, we need your investment.

If 10 people sign up for $10 monthly donations, we will be able to continue our efforts to take each of our participants into the community at least twice a month.


We offer eight goal-driven services that are individualized to each participant. All services focus on strengthening independence, giving support for community access, and developing work and/or life skills.

Get Involved

There are several ways to get involved in the mission of the Opportunity Center. You can donate, volunteer, join our team of staff, help with events – and more! Help us create endless possibilities for people with disabilities.


We know that navigating the system and knowing how to help yourself or your loved one is a challenge. Let us make things easier for you by providing a list of resources to get you started and help you on your journey!

The Opportunity Center of Owensboro provides services through the Support for Community Living (SCL) and Michelle P. Waiver (MPW) Medicaid Waiver programs. The SCL waiver program is a home and community-based program funded by the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services and administered by DDID (Division of Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities). The SCL program was developed to allow a person with developmental disabilities to receive services outside of institutions.

The MPW is part of Kentucky’s 1915(c) HCBS (home and community-based services) Medicaid waiver program. MPW provides assistance to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to help them live in the community as independently as possible.
