ABOUT THE MEADOWS CENTER FOR OPPORTUNITY

VOCATIONAL/EMPLOYMENT TRAINING PROGRAM & DATA DESTRUCTION

Located in Edmond, Oklahoma, the Meadows Center for Opportunity is a non-profit corporation serving a dual purpose in the community as a Sheltered Workshop providing data destruction and other business services to more than 3,000 organizations and businesses across Oklahoma.

As an Oklahoma Sheltered Workshop, the Meadows provides controlled employment and training services to those with developmental disabilities and permanent brain damage as a result of trauma injuries.  These individuals work in a sheltered environment along with other workers who have similar developmental disabilities.  Our mission is to provide each person the training and opportunity necessary for that person to realize his or her maximum employment productivity.

Our customers in the business, banking, medical, government, and educational fields rely on the Meadows to destroy sensitive and confidential information through data destruction, hard drive shredding, and pill bottle destruction.  We also offer additional business services, such as packaging, shrink wrapping, manual collation, brochure assembly, and more.  Unlike many of our competitors, the Meadows does not add fuel charges to our data destruction fees, and we pride ourselves on a commitment to the environment that includes eco-friendly recycling of shredded documents.

Physical Challenges

Michael Crawley - Sunday, February 11, 2018

For those of you who are familiar with the Meadows, you know that on this blog we focus primarily on intellectual challenges. That is because each of the men and women we employ has an IQ of 70 or less, which is the state’s criteria of determining a developmental disability.

Public Perceptions

Michael Crawley - Monday, February 05, 2018

As people drive past our building each day it is impossible to get a true sense of what is going on inside our 42,000 sq. ft. facility. That leaves the general public with a natural curiosity about what kind of organization we are and exactly what it is we do.

Every Life Matters

Michael Crawley - Sunday, January 28, 2018

Each one of us believes that our life is important. But, unfortunately, our fixation with our own significance can sometimes lead us to presume that other lives don’t matter as much as ours. We often fall into the trap of believing that we are superior and, therefore, by default, others are inferior.

More Than A Job

Michael Crawley - Monday, January 22, 2018

Our jobs play an important role in each of our lives. In many ways, they help to define us. For some, it means having the ability to provide for their families. For others, it is a lifelong commitment to a meaningful career. But no matter what the circumstances, our jobs occupy a significant portion of our time.

A Friend Is A Friend

Michael Crawley - Monday, January 15, 2018

Friendships are some of the most important relationships we have in life. They add a richness and warmness to our existence. They provide comfort and make us feel connected. They allow us to be understood and accepted for who we are. They provide us with people we can count on during difficult times. And, just as importantly, friendship gives us someone to share our happiest moments with.

The Unseen

Michael Crawley - Monday, January 01, 2018

Most people would be shocked to learn that three out of every one hundred Americans have a developmental disability and that in the United States there are approximately ten million adults, teens, and children with some type of intellectual challenge.

The Year Ahead

The Future of the Meadows

Michael Crawley - Thursday, November 09, 2017

We deeply regret that lawmakers in our state have been unable to reach a budget compromise and instead have chosen to eliminate funding for organizations like the Meadows. The lack of money will have a dramatic impact on the lives of the most vulnerable among us. Many nonprofits will be forced to close. Tragically that will create significant job losses for men and women with intellectual and physical challenges.

The Oklahoma Budget Crisis

Michael Crawley - Sunday, October 29, 2017

For thirty-five years, The Meadows Center for Opportunity has served the employment needs of men and women with intellectual and physical challenges. During that time, the state has been an important financial partner in allowing us to fulfill our mission of providing work and vocational training to adults who otherwise would not have the chance to have a job.
