First Serve Opportunities is a non-profit organization providing in-home and community support services for those with special needs.

We are the only organization in our area that provides services on behalf of both of these groups.

True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost...
but the urge to serve others at whatever the cost.
