Opportunity Connections To Hold Talks On Planning Process

Opportunity Connections, which provides services to people with intellectual disabilities to help them live independently, will hold two public sessions in Hood River and The Dalles on Thursday as the organization works on a five-year planning process.  Executive Director Rita Rathkey says changes in state and federal regulations are changing the kind of services they can provide.  Rathkey adds a recent Governor’s order in the wake of a pending lawsuit by a disability rights organization against the state of Oregon will shutdown referrals to sheltered workshops by next summer.  Public meetings are set for Thursday, first at noon at the Opportunity Connections office in Hood River at 1102 12th Street, and at 5:30 p.m. in The Dalles at 506 East 2nd Street.
