It's amazing what can happen when you believe in the power of people! Good-2-Go Oregon was started in 2009 with only a handful of members. Today, our agency serves hundreds of members throughout Central Oregon and the Portland Metro Area.
We are firmly committed to the belief that people with developmental & intellectual disabilities can lead independent lives and be active members of their community. We believe in personal empowerment, not dependence.
Good-2-Go has thrived with its exceptional services and focus on client choice. We embrace the idea and practice of DIGNITY OF RISK, and employ this concept daily in our work experience.
We know that you have choices in your service provider agency. We appreciate your faith and trust in us to help you achieve your goals for personal growth & independence.
Thank you for your support and partnership.
