About OHI Maine:
Founder Bonnie-Jean Brooks believes two things — Everything is possible, and people with disabilities should be provided with opportunities and support services that allow them to be part of their families and live in their communities. Fueled by the groundswell of support for people with disabilities, but knowing there was still a lot to be done, she quit her teaching job and in 1979 founded the nonprofit Opportunity Housing, Inc., now called OHI.
OHI began with two residential homes offering support services to people with disabilities — mental illness, intellectual disabilities or both — and provided them the opportunity to set goals, make choices, and live and work within their communities.
After over 40 years of success and growth, OHI today supports nearly 600 people with disabilities in their own homes or apartments, or in one of OHI’s staffed houses and in the community, through a variety of services. With OHI support, people with disabilities volunteer in hospitals, fire departments, animal shelters, churches and synagogues, proving that everyone has the potential to be more independent and assets to their community if given the chance — and the right combination of support services.
