Organization: Opportunitiy Services

Sector: 501C-3 Non-Profit

Organization Mission: Opportunity Services is where adults with disabilities find pride in a job well done. At OS, we believe each of our clients is uniquely able. We provide job placement and coaching to people with disabilities, but our focus isn’t on physical or developmental challenges. We focus on an individual client’s abilities instead. We match each client’s strengths and preferences with well-suited work opportunities in a range of workplaces, including restaurants, offices, hotels, and stores. Our clients work in the communities where they live, not in isolated workshops. We’ve been providing job services for more than 40 years, working with more than 100 partner businesses and thousands of clients.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that Cbeam will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, Cbeam's distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevancies with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements.

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. Cbeam could be an interesting first step.
