It’s finally here! For the last six months, FACT Oregon’s board and staff have been working to reformat our mission and vision that drive our work.
As the state’s official parent training and information center, we are dedicated to bringing special education information and resources to all areas of this amazing region we call home.
However, it’s no secret that disability intersects not only with education: it crosses into one’s community; from recreation to medical visits, sports clubs to faith-based settings. Disability should not keep a person from experiencing a rich, full life where all communities are accessible, welcoming, and embrace that disability is natural.
With this in mind, FACT Oregon has expanded its mission to focus on that whole life we want for our children: “Empower Oregon families experiencing disability in their pursuit of a whole life by expanding awareness, growing community, and equipping families.”
We’re very excited to expand our work into areas outside of special education. You can count on us to share our person-centered, family-driven perspective in more workshops and events that address topics related to recreation, county services, and much more.
