Opportunity Matters to Everyone (OME, OM2E, and OM2E1) was founded in 2015 in Costa Mesa, CA. After experiencing the need for an inclusive environment where children and young adults with developmental disabilities and their families could join together for enriching activities and skill-building experiences. OME is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
OME creates and hosts free to very low cost, year-round, meaningful and enriching community activities dedicated to providing children and young adults with disabilities, the opportunity to participate in fun, social and academic activities, all while learning necessary life skills. Programs build friendships, confidence, independence and even hands-on work training experiences for participants transitioning to adulthood.
Our nurturing environment allows participants to simply be involved in enriching and and typical programs that they might not otherwise be able to experience because of their disability. OME gives everyone an opportunity to enjoy events such as summer camps, movie nights, seasonal celebrations, job-skill development and support groups.
While OME began as an organization geared toward benefiting children with developmental disabilities, learning disabilities, behavior problems, ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders, we now strive to provide opportunities for children and young adults with various developmental abilities and their families.
Opportunity Matters to Everyone is devoted to providing meaningful, enriching, and learning opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.
Opportunity Matters to Everyone envisions on-going year-round activities and opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities. our goal is to continue to provide a nurturing and inclusive environment where individuals with developmental disabilities can participate in fun activities, learn new hobbies, make new friendships, gain skills toward independence and employment, and be proud of themselves. We look toward supporting participants throughout childhood and adulthood.
