Welcome to One Vision's FirstGiving home page!
Opportunity Village is now One Vision. What is our vision? To inspire meaningful lives by connecting people with purpose, whether that purpose is obtaining a job, finding a home that meets an individual’s needs and wants, or supporting personal interests.
We are a nonprofit organization that provides services to more than 550 individuals so they may achieve greater purpose and independence through personal choice and community involvement. Founded in 1971, our realm of services has evolved to include community-based personal and employment support for individuals with disabilities; the Children’s Autism Centers in Clear Lake and Fort Dodge; and many retail businesses that provide revenue for our organization and job opportunities for people we support. One Vision provides services in 30 Iowa communities including Clear Lake, Mason City, Fort Dodge, Eagle Grove and Humboldt. We employ approximately 600 staff, making our organization one of the largest employers in North Iowa.
