One Vision: Connecting People with Purpose

One Vision is celebrating its 50th anniversary of providing disability services to North Iowans!

Originally known as Handicap Village, we opened our doors in September 1971. One Vision started out as a campus of 10 cottages in Clear Lake, Iowa, and was designed to provide supports for 160 people with disabilities. We now serve approximately 410 people across 30 communities in North Iowa. 

What is our vision? To inspire meaningful lives by connecting people with purpose, whether that purpose is obtaining a job in their community, finding a home that meets their needs and wants, or supporting their personal interests. In the fall of 2021, we were honored to be chosen as one of 15 Northern Iowa Employers of Choice by the Globe Gazette. 

One Vision is a human services nonprofit organization that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Incorporated in 1966, we first opened our doors in 1971. Opportunity Village is now One Vision.
