Review for ON-THE-MOVE COMMUNITY INTEGRATION , Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience with On-the-Move has been the most rewarding experience of my life. It is like a family to me. I consider On-the-Move a "home" for participants and myself, it is an environment that welcomes and embraces different cultures, humor, talents, interests, and abilities. I cannot speak more highly about the staff and volunteers at On-the-Move; they are compassionate, competent, supportive and extremely fun.

On-the-Move is an incredible program where adults with developmental disabilities have the space and support to participate in activities that enhance their lives and the community. The Director of On-the-Move, Molly Mayo, envisioned a program that went beyond typical services offered to adults with developmental disabilities. On-the-Move was an innovative idea and social movement agency that has set the standard for many other day programs that have followed suit. On-the-Move is a place where adults can go and spend time socializing, navigate the community and enjoy community activities while educating all parties involved.

Molly hired me as one of her first employees over six years ago, I then served on the board of directors, and now am an advisor to the organization. I feel privileged to continue working with On-the-Move.
