So, Opportunity Village provides a variety of different programs which provide men and women with all levels of disabilities the chance to lead a life that had previously been unattainable.

OfficerDown.US 501c3 mission: to help ease the financial strain on our LE community and their families in times of need.
“OfficerDown.US has worked very hard to bring assistance to our law enforcement family and to help ease the hardships incurred while the officers go out and risk their lives every day. It has been incredibly challenging to bring awareness of the organization to the general public. The Organization was created in the wake of two local LVMPD officers being killed while eating lunch at Cici’s pizza. Officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo were coworkers of President and Executive Director of Officer Down’s husband. At 25 years of service, her husband went into retirement and she decided to keep supporting our law enforcement community from behind the scenes. That is how she generally likes to do things. Having raised and distributed over $400K in four years, the Officer Down team realizes that there is so much more that OfficerDown.US can do to help. The Organization is a 501c3 and is able to share that status with those who use their website to raise funds furthering the mission to help law enforcement and their families. This is a great benefit. Fees are below fellow crowdfunding companies and they are doing a service like none other, with a social media following of over 70,000 organic followers. By supporting the mission and enhancing the public view, you aid and assist law enforcement families locally and nationally.”
OfficerDown.US welcomes young and old alike to join the law enforcement supportive community. We’ll have long and short sleeved t-shirts, bracelets, rings, car magnets, challenge coins, and more.
