The Arc Lane County – Families Connected
People with developmental disabilities have the right to live in and be part of their community.
Full inclusion should be a reality not a dream.
Families with children with developmental disabilities should get the supports they need to maintain a healthy family.
People who work with individuals with developmental disabilities should earn a living wage and receive the training they need.
Bridging Communities, a program of Living Opportunities, serves families that have a child who experiences disability and the community who support them.
Central Oregon Disability Support Network
Our mission is to promote a positive understanding of disability and community inclusion, as well as be a source of support, information, and education for families and professionals. CODSN will accomplish this mission by empowering and supporting families and individuals who have been touched by disability. We will work to increase education, promote public understanding and acceptance, and encourage full inclusion of individuals with differences in our community.

ROCCO’s Family Network encourages and equips families of children with disabilities to actively engage and embrace community; creating acceptance and inclusion for all. We are parents who have found hope, joy, strength and inspiration in our children. We believe they will have full, abundant lives with opportunities to pursue their passion and follow their dreams. We advocate for inclusive practices and believe our children will graduate from High School with a diploma. They will go to college. They will work in community and be paid a fair wage. They will have the freedom of personal choice and be encouraged to pursue self-determined lives. We believe the greatest source of encouragement and hope for the future is through meaningful connections with other families; real families, like us, who face real struggles. Families who understand what we’re saying when we can’t find words at all.
