Our purpose is to develop individual residential alternatives for adults with intellectual disabilities by providing supportive, community based, in-home placements. We want every person receiving services to be safe, respected and able to reach his or her full potential. We strive to be competent, creative and committed.
Opportunity in Living was founded in 1996 by David and Barbara Hillman. The focus was to start an agency that provided individual residential alternatives for adults with intellectual disabilities that were supportive, community-based placements in host homes or apartment settings. Opportunity In Living has steadily grown over the years and now provides services in Denver, Douglas, Arapahoe, Adams and Jefferson counties. We have program approval by the State of Colorado to provide residential, day program and vocational services.
