Reviews for On-The-Move Community Integration
I like On-the-Move! It's a joyful place. I really like all of the staff that are here. They spend a lot of time really getting to know people and understand everyone. I also enjoy all the activities- especially when we do arts and crafts and when we explore art galleries.
I like On-the-Move every day. because I hang out with my friends. I go to the potluck for volunteering at the food bank.
I love On-the-Move. The staff worry about my safety. We just have fun."
Shout out to On-the-Move staff who are understanding, helpful and friendly. My loved one participates in the program and continues to thrive. On-the-Move gives us purpose and much needed balance in our lives.
My daughter was very hesitant and nervous her first day at On the Move. She came home that afternoon with the biggest smile and could not wait to go back. It has been about a year and she will soon be adding another day with the program. She has blossomed. She has more confidence with in the community, she has developed new interests and has a real bond with the staff and participants of On the Move. This is an amazing program with excellent, caring staff. We are so very grateful to be part of this organization. They change challenges into success stories.
I like to do outings. I like which group and staff I am in. Walking! We go to new places. My favorite things are when we go see stages, like performances on stages, music concerts and acting and plays and stuff. I like doing journals. That is where each staff has cameras and they take pictures of people and things on the outing, and we make a journal page at the end of the day.
It is fun. We do lots of free stuff. We go to different places like art museums, galleries, concerts, and volunteer projects. We take the bus and the max to all kinds of places. We enjoy the nice sun outside! We can eat lunch outside on a nice sunny day. We do so many different activities.
I volunteer at the Oregon Zoo with On-the-Move. I volunteer at Happy Trails horses with On-the-Move. I get exercise and stay healthy. I make friends and spend time with friends.
On-the-Move is a great place to meet people. You can make friends. It's a good place to get help with your independent living skills. I would recommend On-the-Move to people I know like my friend and my family.
I started with On-the-Move a long time ago. I think that On-the-Move helped me a lot for the reading class. It taught us how to make friends. I have a lot of memories with On-the-Move. The staff are great. We come together as a family. I feel safe in the community because of On-the-Move. We had a great year!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I think it is important to keep On-the-Move open. I don't want the budget cuts to hurt us.
