"Thank you so much for inviting me into your home on 16th St. I learned a lot from visiting with the residents and staff, such as the family unit which formed from a group of people living together. I honestly felt a happy energy of a family working and playing together. I felt compelled to send you a letter to tell you how impressed I am. I really enjoyed my visit with all of you. I found it difficult to leave because it was so easy to be sucked into your family unit. Everyone worked so hard to take care of each other's needs."

"Thank you for placing me in Foster 7 for my Service Learning experience. I am so grateful to have met all the clients and the staff this semester! They made my Tuesday nights fun and worthwile. This experience opened my eyes to see how a simple presence of self can make someone else's day.
I wrote my Service Learning Reflection paper on how well OMI attains to the every day needs of their clients. The four elders I worked with are so lucky to have you all in their lives. You promote physical activity, nutritional health, physical therapy exercises, social stimulation, proper etiquette/manners, and so much more that may not be present in their lieves if they weren't at Foster 7. I look up to you all for doing something so great with your life - helping people who truly need it. I was inspired by this experience and I hope that in the future I can impact others' lives like your staff does every day!
I wanted to let you know that your staff at Foster 7 does a fantastic job. I admired their constant positive attitudes, patience, and utmost care for the clients each day. Those four are in great hands.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience!"

"This week I had the opportunity to visit Foster 9, and I would just like to thank you for the chance to get to know the amazing and loving people who reside there. They welcomed me with open arms, as well as the staff who spend most of their time there. The experience has changed my life for the better and I was extremely sad when I had to leave. I am so happy to know that your company provdies such wonderful services with such wonderful staff. The clients will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you again for such an amazing opportunity."

"I have been working with Opportunity Matters for close to a decade. I visit their homes probably 8-12 times a year and many of these visits are unannounced. In all of those visits I have never seen anything but kindness and professionalism from OMI's staff towards their clients. I am happy to personally donate to OMI's fundraising efforts as I feel they are a caring and professional asset to some of this communities most vulnerable members."
