Why Support OBI?

We have asked these two questions of our donors, “Why OBI? What does it mean to you to support an agency like ours? ” The overwhelming response is that OBI helps people live full lives and promote a quality of life that would not be achieved without the support and services we provide. According to Greg Cantori of The Marion I. and Henry J. Knott Foundation, “We are honored in supporting OBI in providing a wonderful home that creates an outstanding ‘Opportunity to Build’ on the unique passions and talents inherent in every single person who passes through their doors.”

How to Support OBI.


DDA funding allows us to provide the basics but it is through your generous financial support to our Annual Fund and Endowment that we are able to develop and advance our program.
