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.

The Eulogy

Michael Crawley - Friday, March 24, 2017

Even though the church was small, Reverend Hansen estimated it was less than half full. Only the immediate family and a few acquaintances had bothered to come together on this blustery January day to pay their last respects to Donald Phillips, a man who, during his eighty plus years of life, had survived a multitude of challenges that included being ignored and rejected by those around him.

A Gathering Place

Michael Crawley - Friday, March 10, 2017

The large room is located near the front of our facility. It has sixteen long tables and can comfortably seat sixty people. Mounted on a wall are three computer stations that are used to clock people in and out. On one side of the room there are eight microwaves, and on the other side is a water fountain. Three of the four walls are lined with lockers, but there are no locks because there is trust.

The Reality of Employment

Michael Crawley - Sunday, February 19, 2017

The Meadows Center for Opportunity was established in 1983 for the sole purpose of employing adults with developmental disabilities. It has been our privilege to work with many different men and women through the years, and we are honored that some of these individuals are still working with us, more than three decades later.

Fading Away

Michael Crawley - Saturday, November 26, 2016

Jim Haley pushed the doorbell for the third time, and guessed correctly that his sister was not wearing her hearing aids. He waited for a couple of seconds and then rapped forcefully on the door. After a few more moments he finally heard noise from inside. Slowly the door was unlocked and opened slightly. Jim watched with amusement as his sister’s face peeked out.

Unconditional Love

Michael Crawley - Sunday, November 13, 2016

Love is the most powerful force there is because it brings people together in a way that nothing else can. Without it, humanity could not survive. Fortunately, the world is blessed with many different types of love. There is the romantic attraction shared by two people. There is the affection that results from deep friendship. And there is the deep and abiding love that dwells in a family, particularly parental love for their children. All of these produce intense feelings that create a willingness to focus on someone else’s needs.

Mr. King

Michael Crawley - Friday, October 07, 2016

On a dreary, gray October afternoon, a light rain bounced off of Gabrielle’s umbrella as she stared at the simple headstone of Ryan King. There was a cross in each corner and centered underneath his name in bold lettering were just three words and two dates. As she studied it, she thought the simplicity of the inscription was hopelessly inadequate to explain an entire human life - but still she was glad that she had paid for the stone. At least there was some kind of recognition for a human being who had spent his final days on earth being ignored by everyone, including her.

A Gift of Compassion

Michael Crawley - Friday, September 16, 2016

The Meadows is an organization far different than most. We are a thriving small business that was established in 1983. With more than three thousand customers statewide, we have developed a strong reputation for our professionalism and for consistently providing the highest quality work possible. But it is not our commitment to offering first rate service and customer satisfaction that sets us apart. The reason our success has so much meaning is because of who we employ.

The Senior Center

Michael Crawley - Friday, September 02, 2016

At 11:00 a.m. sharp the doors opened, and the regulars carefully started making their way into the nondescript community building that played such an important role in their lives. As they entered, they were greeted by the hearty aroma of the noontime meal that the staff of five had been laboring over for several hours. Today’s menu included pork chops, mashed potatoes, green beans and hot rolls. Each person could also choose either a tossed salad or fruit salad. And because it was Wednesday, they were serving everyone’s favorite dessert, chocolate cake.

Through Their Eyes

Michael Crawley - Friday, August 19, 2016

Empathy is the ability to sense, understand and appreciate the feelings and experiences of others. It requires taking the time and making the effort to focus on someone else without judging them and without giving into the temptation to deny the validity of their perspective. Unfortunately, it is often the case in the lives of people with developmental disabilities that empathy is not embraced by those who have a direct effect on their lives.
