Opportunity House, located in Sycamore IL, serves the developmentally disabled residents in our community. For over 50 years, Opportunity House has provided these individuals a stepping stone to learn, grow and explore activities and work experiences. A Not-for-Profit organization, Opportunity House owns a number of buildings in the DeKalb and Sycamore area, both residences as well as buildings such as the one on North California Street which was remodeled to bring in a number of operations under one roof. Swedberg & Associates, Inc. has had the pleasure of completing various projects over the years for Opportunity House, but this one, by far, is our favorite. In its former life, the building was a warehouse, until Opportunity House purchased it and began, slowly, converting to their new use.
The renovated space contains a basketball/volleyball court, two conference rooms, several administration offices, restrooms, separate lunch and dining rooms, and two production areas where Opportunity House residents can engage in supported-work activities.
