About the opportunity center

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.
