Changing lives, with your help

Greg, 39, is thriving as part of a Supported Employment Team (SET) at Medtronic in Mounds View, where he works four days per week. "OP is the best thing to ever happen for my son," said Greg's mom Jewel. "Staff are the greatest." Served by Opportunity Partners since 2002, Greg built his skills in small steps by gaining experience on production jobs at OP in Anoka before advancing to a community site. "Getting this job has been a godsend for him," Jewel said, adding that her son has learned a lot about teamwork and built strong relationships in the process.
