We’ve got some exciting news happening at the Central Oregon Collective! We’ve been continually looking for ways to grow and expand our organization – for both our clients and team. Recently, we found ourselves fortunate enough to receive an additional house. This new house, which we’ve named Benham Road House, will allow us to expand and care for even more clients through our residence program!
As an organization that remains dedicated to expanding our facilities and services, our ultimate objective has always been to positively impact the lives of as many individuals as possible by providing them with a variety of resources and adventures. That’s why we’re so excited to extend our services to even more individuals in our community!
With our deep commitment to enriching the lives of disabled individuals in the community, we go above and beyond to provide opportunities for inclusion, empowerment, and enjoyment. Summer is a season of excitement and outdoor exploration, and at the Central Oregon Collective, we understand the importance of providing our clients with opportunities to fully participate in the joys of the season. Through a range of carefully designed and accessible activities, we strive to empower disabled individuals to embrace the spirit of summer and create lasting memories.
We love cultivating a space that inspires our clients and encourages their sense of passion and curiosity. One of the highlights of our new Benham Road House is that it has a beautiful backyard! Many of our clients love to garden, so we are ecstatic about the opportunities that lie ahead for this summer!
Gardening provides our clients with the opportunity to tend to and nurture something. They learn patience as they eagerly plant their garden and wait for it to grow. Through this, our clients also gain a sense of responsibility and ownership. If you don’t already follow us on Instagram or Facebook, make sure you do so that you can check out what we plant this season.
No doubt, the opening of the Benham Road House is exciting for all of us here at the Central Oregon Collective, and we can’t wait to see all the amazing things that the future holds. Most importantly, this incredible new house will allow us to continue to provide a safe, nurturing, and inclusive environment where our clients can thrive. Our new house will allow even more individuals to gain the chance to learn new skills, build meaningful friendships, and ultimately, feel a sense of purpose and meaningful contribution within our community.
As our organization keeps growing, we’re super excited to dive into new adventures. With the weather warming up here in Central Oregon and with summer just around the corner, we can’t contain our excitement to hit up the stunning lakes, breath-taking views, and fun road trips. Oh, and did we mention all the awesome music concerts happening in Bend? Our clients are big music fans, so we can’t wait to get them out in the community and enjoying some of their favorite artists coming to Hayden Homes Amphitheater this summer.
And while we’re all about having fun, the most important aspect of what we do is taking care of our clients’ well-being. We believe that immersing our clients in the community, teaching them life skills, and encouraging them to connect with one another allows them to thrive and contribute to our community in a meaningful way.
As the days get longer and the sun shines brighter, we’re so excited to dive headfirst into the amazing adventures we have planned. We’ll hit the trails, have picnics by the lakes, and take advantage of our new Benham Road House garden!
We want to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who has supported us along the way. The addition of Benham Road House wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our amazing community. We truly treasure the relationships we’ve built over the years, and we’re excited to form new connections as we continue our mission throughout all of Central Oregon!
