    Opening the Front Door to Possibilities

    The Front Door strives to:

    • Improve the way people learn about OPWDD and available service options
    • Better connect individual needs to available services
    • Give people as many opportunities as possible for self-direction

    Front Door services rest on the philosophy of self-determination and the idea that people with developmental disabilities have the right to:

    • Enjoy more meaningful relationships with family, friends, and others in their lives
    • Experience personal growth
    • Fully participate in their communities
    • Live in the home of their choice

    Ultimately, opening the Front Door means people with developmental disabilities will have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and live the lives of THEIR choosing.
