Oregon PVA has a strong and active role in the community, and we are really glad we found them. I worked with their staff to build our sports program, and to make sure that what we were doing would meet the needs and interests of their clients. They are easy to work with and helpful in many ways, inviting us to their outreach events and introducing us to people we should also work with in the community.
