1. To assist adults with developmental disabilities in accessing meaningful, healthful, and environmentally responsible activities in our community. 2. To enrich the social fabric of our community through fuller participation of individuals with differences. 3. To increase social appreciation for human differences through modeling the celebration of diversity.


Only 5 years old, On-the-Move has grown from serving 7 individuals with disabilities to 55 participants with a waiting list. We started a free reading class in 2012 and have given 40 students with special needs the opportunity to work on independent living skills. We trained 30 community members in inclusion and disability issues. Our commitment to sustainability achieved the silver rating certification in Portland's sustainability at work program and we have been voted in Oregon's Top 100 Green businesses for two years. We are thankful of the community support that has allowed us so many accomplishments in such a short time!
