Opportunity Partners receives $5,000 grant from Timberwolves

12/13/2012

Opportunity Partners, a Twin Cities non-profit disability organization, received a $5,000 grant from the Minnesota Timberwolves FastBreak¬†Foundation for their work in successfully transitioning students with disabilities into life after high school graduation. The grant’s theme is “New Season, New Beginnings,” focusing on offering Minnesota youth a new direction or opportunity.

Opportunity Partners’ Youth Transition Services prepares young people with disabilities to transition out of the special education system and into adulthood by partnering with school districts and assisting the students in making future plans. The organization strives to ensure that people with disabilities have the opportunity to lead rewarding, productive lives full of purpose and meaning.

The grant will be used for an outdoor basketball court at Opportunity Partners’ Koch Campus. Funds will pay for the hoop, foundation work for the goal post and concrete work for the court. Opportunity Partners was presented with the check at the Minnesota Timberwolves game on November 2.
