Ever After Opportunities came to be, with the help of the community, and
a group of women who wanted to help the youth of the region.
A Non-Profit was brought to fruition that would help young ladies and
young gentlemen live their happily ever after by offering them: love, guidance, support, and the tools necessary to overcome barriers to their dreams.
While we are most commonly known for our Formal Dress Give Away’s, through the Annual Cinderella’s Closet Event, we are thrilled to offer many Life Skills Classes and free tutoring to youth 12-18 years of age to help them live their happily ever after!
If you are interested in helping out either donating financially or by volunteering your time, please visit our Donate and Volunteer pages for more information on how you can help change a young lady or gentleman’s life today!
Come live your happily ever after with Ever After Opportunities, where no youth is left behind!
