SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — A local non-profit held a ribbon cutting in celebration of their new renovated house.
Opportunities Unlimited (OU) helps those who have experienced traumatic brain injuries, by providing 24/7 housing with help and teaching strategies and skills for independent living. Monday’s ribbon cutting marked the second time the non-profit has renovated one of their intermediate care facilities.
Jennifer McCabe, the CEO of OU, said the renovation provides a more comfortable living area for those dealing with brain injuries.
“This is wonderful. You know nobody seeks out a brain injury, right, and so when you’ve been impacted by that life changing health situation. To be able to have a home that you feel comfortable in, that you take pride in, I think is just one of the first steps in your recovery,” said McCabe.
If you’d like to help out Opportunities Unlimited, McCabe said there’s always a need for volunteers for nonprofits.
