2015-2016 Board of Directors

As a private, non-profit human service organization, Opportunities Unlimited of Niagara is governed by an independent and volunteer Board of Directors. This board is unique in that it is comprised of members of the community with a significant number of parents, family members or legal guardians of people with developmental disabilities. This ensures that Opportunities Unlimited of Niagara, true to the vision of the parents who founded it in 1955, remains a family led organization dedicated to providing programs and services to maximize the quality of life for people of all ages with developmental disabilities. The Board of Directors meets monthly.
