Good-2-Go Oregon is Central Oregon's premiere community-based support program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). We specialize in high functioning adults who experience some form of Developmental Disability.
The Applied Community Experience (ACE) program is the flagship program of Good-2-Go. It helps our clients learn interpersonal skills and community norms through the creation and hosting of fun, community-based group activities. These activities currently host only 6 clients due to COVID restrictions, but have historically seen turnouts as high as 30+ clients. This allows clients to meet other people in the I/DD community, make friends, learn to socialize in a group setting, and most importantly, have fun!
