BRIDGING COMMUNITIES

Bridging Communities is a family-led initiative that is responsive to the needs of families in Southern Oregon with children experiencing intellectual and developmental disabilities. From the moment Bridging Communities was launched, it has been shaped by the voices of families in the community. It was these families who worked together to choose the name of the program.

Bridging Communities is guided by the core belief that people who experience disability and their families have the right to live, love, work, play and pursue their life aspirations just as others do in their community.

The Oregon Consortium of Family Networks, a project of the Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities and the Office of Developmental Disability Services, is an association of family networks committed to a set of core values. Each member is an independent, family-led organization working in collaboration with community partners and each other.
