Supporting youth and adults with disabilities to become
independent and proud members of their community.
OBI’s mission is to support youth and adults with disabilities to experience full inclusion in their communities as they learn, work, and pursue their paths to personal success.
WE LISTEN. WE ADVISE.
OBI seeks and builds relationships with individuals looking to make a difference in their communities. By finding those eager to create change, we are deepening the impact.
OBI is proud to offer person-centered programmatic offerings that support each individual where they are, while challenging them to explore new opportunities.
Sponsor a friend.
As individuals engage in their broader community, we rely on support from donors to underwrite the expenses associated with community activities. Expenses associated with community engagement can be anything from covering an individual’s admission into a park to the increased staffing needs to support lower community ratios.
Sponsor or attend events.
OBI hosts several events a year that highlight community partnerships in the form of sponsorships and ticket sales. The most notable event is our annual Mardi Gras Gala. We are always looking to expand our partnerships and engage the community.
Sponsor or Attend
Unrestricted donations to OBI allow us to use your contributions in areas of need.
OBI looks to community volunteers to enhance our programmatic offerings. Whether it’s leading a class or serving on a committee we always need more volunteers.
SPONSOR A FRIEND.
