Founded in 2007, the IT Girls is a group of thoughtful and caring women who have come together in Las Vegas to deliver a message to the community that replaces fear with understanding and compassion. The intention is to spread the word that people with severe disabilities are a gift to all. It is the job of the IT Girls and the community to enhance the lives of people with disabilities by recognizing them for the unique and special talents they possess and empowering them through our efforts and understanding.
This event is presented by IT Girls and sponsored by Nevada State Bank and Opportunity Village; as well as: The Las Vegas Review-Journal, FOX 5, Equiinet and Wild Truffles.
About Opportunity Village
Mission: Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people within our community with significant intellectual disabilities, to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
Opportunity Village was founded in 1954 by seven families who were determined to give their disabled children the best lives possible. Now, 60 years later, Opportunity Village is one of the most recognized and respected Community Rehabilitation Programs in the United States.
Nevada’s largest employer of people with disabilities, Opportunity Village serves nearly 3,000 individuals annually, providing vocational training, employment, habilitation and social recreation programs and services that make their lives more productive and interesting.
Opportunity Village OVIPs – individuals who were previously considered unemployable – work in jobs throughout the community and at Opportunity Village’s Employment Resource Centers, collectively earning wages amounting to more than $7.6 million in 2012. They are hard-working and diligent, proudly paying taxes and happily leading more engaged, fulfilling lives.
Primarily a self-funded organization, Opportunity Village generates the majority of its operational funding through its employment contracts and fundraising efforts such as the Magical Forest and Great Santa Run, saving Nevada taxpayers $33.7 million annually.
