Opportunity Village announces $30M housing project

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas has one of the hottest real estate markets in the nation. Supply is low and demand is high. But the challenge that potential buyers face is nothing compared to those in the special needs community.

Unlike the able-bodied, many of the valley’s disabled cannot simply move into any home or apartment. A new project hopes to fill some of the void.

John and Lia Riccobene, a brother and sister, have been inseparable since they were children. Both work at Opportunity Village.

“I get a good paycheck and I love it,” said John.

“I like to have a good time with my friends at Opportunity Village,” said Lia Riccobene.

John and Lia’s lives are simple, challenging and beautiful. But their disabilities keep them living with their older sister.

“That’s what I love is being with my family,” John said.

Marie Branchini started caring for John and Lia seven years ago... Read More
