Opportunities for the Retarded, Inc. began in 1980 by current
President and Chief Executive Officer Mrs. Susanna F. Cheung,
together with a group of concerned individuals and parents of
adult men and women with developmental disabilities. The group
envisioned a community that would provide a permanent and caring
home, productive activity and encourage the optimal development
of special people.
Helemano Plantation, a place "where aloha begins"

you truly take a piece of Aloha with you. Once a dream, Helemano
Plantation also founded by Mrs. Susanna F. Cheung, provides
a "real world" work environment for the developmentally
disabled. Helemano Plantation offers training and employment
