Bridging Communities, along with six other family networks statewide, form the Oregon Consortium of Family Networks (OCFN). We believe:

  • Disability is one of many types of human diversity.
  • Families with high expectations for their children raise adults with high expectations.
  • All families have strengths and valuable experiences.
  • Peer support is sustainable, empowers families and changes lives.
  • Empowered families strengthen communities.
  • The role of service systems is to complement the support that exists in community.
