All staff will be continuing to serve our participants, however with a rotational presence at the 1070 facility. All Case Managers will be accessible via cell phone when not in the office. In some cases, a message may be left for the staff member you are trying to reach and they will return your call as soon as possible. Senior management is available either directly though the office, or via cell phone. Please contact the front desk at 204-957-5113 for contact information.

We ask that meetings be done via digital communications at this time. We will continue to serve our most vulnerable participants from this location for essential needs, however a security feature in place will allow us to minimize contact, and screen individuals.  

Our clinical staff will be doing their work virtually in line with the latest PAM requirements for Tele-Psychology practice. Psychologists will be making these arrangements personally with each participant being seen. Further information is available through your assigned Case Manager.

Our Adaptive Skills Day Service is currently redirected to our community homes with all Residential participants being served through their Residential home. Our Drop-In services are currently suspended, however, our Community Support staff will continue to serve these individuals in the community as appropriate.

We greatly look forward to the resumption of our day services, and in person therapy and will re-open fully when the health authorities indicate that it is safe to do so and does not prolong or increase the risks to the population as a whole.

Thank you for your support of Opportunities, Inc. and I wish you and your families the best as we all manage this pandemic and its effects on our lives.

Take care !
