Opportunity Partners-Karlins Center, which has been in existence since 1996 in Plymouth, MN, moved to the new building in July. The center serves adults with disabilities, including autism, in a variety of daytime enrichment and community inclusion activities. The new building, renovated taking into account the needs of the people served, offers larger and brighter spaces that will provide a more inviting and comfortable environment. Opportunity Partners owns the new location; the previous space was leased by the organization.
Currently, 34 people are being served at the Opportunity Partners-Karlins Center, with more expected to join as additional staff are hired. View job opportunities.

She was a lifelong advocate for people with disabilities and was very active in the community until her death in 2003. Her daughter, Sandra, was served by Opportunity Partners for many years.
