ACE allows members to participate in social, community driven activities, often disguised as fun. These activities teach new skills, encourage social interaction, teach social norms, and allow our clients to engage with the community, all while having a great time doing so.
Most clients are eligible for ACE but you must have a contract approved by ODDS to participate in most events. Contact your case manager if you are interested in this Program.
Most events are small group activities (3-8 clients) which are fun, affordable, and repeatable. The most common activities include cooking clubs, hikes, and bowling. Feel free to check out our Facebook page to see pictures of our most recent events.
Most activities take place during the afternoons - early evenings on weekdays. Large/special events may happen on weekends. Events happen multiple times per week year-round. Due to the nature of the weather, outdoor events are common during the summer.
Most activities take place within the city with a handful of activities taking place in the surrounding areas. Transportation may be arranged from community hubs to activities. All activities take place within Central Oregon.
Good-2-Go believes that all people have a right to community inclusion, even those who need a little more help achieving it. By participating in social community events, clients are able to develop important social skills such as understanding boundaries, understanding rules and social norms of different environments, and developing non-professional relationships. We strive to teach these skills in ways that can be used in their own independent lives, enabling them to engage more with their community with relying on their Life Skills Coach.
