When Opportunity Knocks, the Community Responds

Palm Beach's Oldest Charity Looks to Expand


Palm Beach society gathered at Mar-A-Lago Tuesday, November 17,  to launch Opportunity Knocks, Opportunity Early Childhood Education & Family Center's capital campaign. Drs. Amos and Maria Dare hosted the night of cocktails, dinner and information.

"I have been involved with Opportunity for the last five years, I have seen the difference this school makes in the lives of children," said Maria Dare. "Expanding this amazing center means more children in our community will have the opportunity to succeed."

For more than 75 years Opportunity Early Childhood Education & Family Center has offered a second home to the children of working families in Palm Beach County.  Now Palm Beach's oldest charity needs a new home. 

"We are at capacity and we have been for the last five years," said Opportunity Executive Director Ali Eger. "There are 300 children on our waiting list, so every day we have to turn hopeful parents away.  The new campus will allow us to offer a high quality preschool education to more children and supportive programs to their families."

Opportunity Knocks, seeks to raise $16 million to create an endowment for the organization and build a new campus on the corner of Donnell Road and Westgate Avenue in West Palm Beach. The 3.7 acre campus will allow the school to serve up to 200 children. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2016.

Since 1939, Opportunity Early Childhood Education & Family Center has been providing developmental programs for the children of working families in Palm Beach County. Opportunity currently serves 96 children, ages 6 weeks to 5 years.
