Message from Craig King, 
Executive Director

I am pleased to announce the new Director of Operations, Bill Coker. Bill brings 26 years’ experience in developing and managing disability services for people with developmental disabilities, including group homes, Independent Living Services, Supported Living Services, employment services, and Assisted Living Services. Bill moved to San Jose from Portland, Oregon a year ago, where he was employed as Associate Director of Coast Rehabilitation Services, a multi-service regional non-profit organization with over 300 staff. Most recently he has been employed as Director of Programs at Silicon Valley Independent Living Center. He earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Business Administration from Western Washington University. Bill brings additional specialized credentials as a Certified Assisted Living and Residential Care Administrator in Oregon, as well as a Certified Workers Compensation Examiner in Oregon.

I am excited to have Bill’s talents, commitment and experience on the leadership team. Please join me in welcoming Bill to Greater Opportunities.

On October 23, we participated in the Autism Society San Francisco Bay Area's second annual conference, "Let a Thousand Flowers Bloom: The Adult Autism/DD Program and Housing Summit," held right next door to our main office at Santa Clara University. Executive Director, Craig King, was one of over 50 speakers at this great event that had over 350 people in attendance and several hundred more tuning in via livestream.

Craig gave a well-received presentation to the audience about the Day Program at Greater Opportunities outlining the features and benefits of the program.
