Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization serving children and adults with intellectual disabilities (OVIP) in the Southern Nevada community. Its mission is to enhance their lives and the lives of the families who love them. Opportunity Village is dedicated to helping people become the very best they can be. Through vocational training, community employment, day services, advocacy, arts and social recreation, citizens with severe disabilities are able to find new friends, realize future career paths, seek independence and community integration, and unleash creative passions.
The master plan for the campus addresses the goals, needs, and challenges of the Oakey Campus of Opportunity Village. Central to the concept is a new front arrival and departure experience for clients, complete with a new inviting entry sequence.
Clients who take transit services will be dropped off under a shaded canopy located onsite at the corner of Oakey Boulevard and Community College Drive. A one-way loop drive will be created to separate transit traffic from other vehicles. Clients who are dropped off by parents will access the site from Oakey Boulevard where short-term parking is provided and a safe travel route has been created to the building. The Welcome Center provides ample places for OVIP’s to wait for pick-up as well as a small tour assembly area and space for parents to relax and connect with Opportunity Village.
The entry to the Magical Forest has been enhanced and several new shade structures have been added to create connections to the program areas and to provide shade throughout the campus.
