Meet the staff:

Kathleen Mangiafico. Kat has been with Opportunity Services for one year, since the creation of our Springfield location. She’s been in the Social Services field for over 10 years, and has seen the local community change its perception on hiring people with disabilities. “I work for Opportunity Services because of the accountability. I can hold clients accountable and see them succeed in the workplace everyday.” You can reach Kat directly at KathleenM@OppServ.org
