Supervisors Will Discuss Future Of The “Opportunity Center” At Tuesday’s Meeting

The process is moving along for the privatization of a Shasta County program that’s been training developmentally disabled people to work for nearly 60 years. The Opportunity Center was formed in 1964, and finds jobs for its clients in a variety of fields. The center contracts to do work for government agencies, as well as private businesses. There are 42 county employees currently providing services for the Opportunity Center, and they’ll be offered other county jobs. In October the Board of Supervisors directed staff to gather public input on a proposal to hand the Opportunity Center over to one or more non-profits, as all other similar organizations in California have already done. On Tuesday the board will consider selecting Lincoln Training Center to take over operations.
