About Our Organization
Opportunities Unlimited provides Community-Based Neurobehavioral Rehabilitation Services and Intermediate Care Residential Services for individuals who have sustained a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, or other physical disability. The OU campus, which is located on the north side of Sioux City, consists of nine residential homes and a large Community Center that serves as the hub for therapies and activities as well as the administrative offices. In addition to providing Community-Based Neurobehavioral Rehabilitation Services and Intermediate Care Residential Services, OU also provides Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) to children and adults with disabilities. These services are offered at the Opportunities Unlimited Community Center, throughout the community, and in the privacy of the person served’s home. OU also has two HCBS homes for individuals requiring assistance with skills needed to live in a more independent setting. The employment services department offers many vocational services to individuals with disabilities who require assistance in building the skills needed to access meaningful employment. Founded by families of Sioux City, OU leads with the mission of "Maximizing Personal Potential Through Dignified and Purposeful Living."
Annual Angels is a program supported by employees and community members to allow funds for persons served to access needed items or activities. Those residing in OU homes receive very limited funds from Medicaid that are stretched thin when considering monthly recreational activities and personal care products and items. During these unprecedented times, new stresses have been placed on the lives of our persons served as they have been home bound since April. This has faciliated incredible creativity on the part of employees and persons served to continue striving towards goals that enhance their quaility of life. The purchase of beds, shoes, winter coats, craft supplies, yard games, and new therapy equipment has impacted many lives as a direct result of the Annual Angels program.
