Mission
Our mission is to provide each person the training and opportunity necessary for that person to realize his or her maximum employment productivity.
Background
Since 1983, The Meadows Center for Opportunity, Inc. has been a non-profit, 501(c)3, sheltered workshop which provides persons with developmental disabilities the opportunity to work, socialize and focus on a positive future. Employees at The Meadows are involved in a variety of services. For example, employees are responsible for product assembly, packaging, and data destruction.
 
The Meadows is a dream come true. It is the result of many years of planning and assessing the needs of these individuals.
 
The vocational training at The Meadows prepares workers for employment and learning. Some employees will achieve complete independence and self-sufficiency. All will gain increased confidence and self-worth.
Impact The Meadows is different from programs/organizations in many other states, because we depend heavily on contracted work and the revenue from that work to maintain operations. We’re actually a small business that hires individuals with disabilities. On the average, our contract revenue (document destruction and packaging) accounts for 70-75% of our total revenue, government assistance 10-20%, and the balance from grants, interest from investments and our annual fundraiser. Because of our dependency on contract revenue, we readily responds to customer needs relating to quality, and turn-around time. Jobs performed include; document/media pick-up and delivery, sorting documents/media for destruction, packaging (bagging, shrink wrapping, blister packaging, boxing), assembly (simple to complex), marketing and public relations services (collating, stuffing, and sorting mailings). 75% of our workforce has a developmental disability and we produce high quality results.
CEO/Executive Director Statement
The Meadows Center for Opportunity, Inc. is different from workshops in many other states, because we depend heavily on contracted work and the revenue from that work to maintain operations.  We are actually a small business that hires individuals with disabilities. On the average, our workshop’s contract revenue (document destruction and packaging) accounts for 65-75% of our revenue, government assistance 20-25%, and the balance from grants, interest from our investments and our annual fundraiser. Because of our dependency on contract revenue, The Meadows readily responds to customer needs relating to quality, security and turn-around time.  Jobs performed include; document/media pick-up, delivery of equipment, sorting documents/media for destruction, shredding/destruction, packaging (bagging, shrink wrapping, blister packaging, boxing), assembly (simple to complex), marketing and public relations services (collating, stuffing, and sorting mailings). 70% of our workforce has a developmental disability and they produce high quality results.

Strategy
Population Served Adults Elderly and/or Disabled
Description The Meadows will destroy your sensitive and confidential data, microfilm, microfiche, plastic cards, audio and video cassettes, back-up cartridges and magnetic tapes.  We can pick up your data or it can dropped off at our location in Edmond, Oklahoma.  All of our bins are latched and locked on-site.  Our trucks are locked at all times except during loading and unloading.  No sorting is necessary, no need to remove folders, or notebooks, paper clips or staples.  Our team of workers sort on-site.  Paper is shredded and baled into 1,300 – 1,500 lb. bales.  These bales are sent nationwide to be reduced to pulp and then recycled as home paper goods, i.e.;  napkins, toilet tissue, etc.  At the completion of the destruction of data we issue certification to our customers providing them a legal audit trail and verification that their material has been destroyed.
