Taking Advantage of "Living Opportunities"
We've traveled a long way from the time when people with developmental and intellectual disabilities spent their lives in "training schools" or other facilities away from the general population.
Medford-based Living Opportunities is one of the organizations that participated in the shift.
The non-profit works with clients to live, work and play as independently as possible, and is in the process of training similar organizations for the same work.
Longtime CEO Roger Hassenpflug joins us to lay out the mission and the accomplishments.
