Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Oregon Adaptive Sports is working to empower individuals to live a healthy and thriving life. Burdened with numerous barriers from astronomical healthcare costs, to lack of universal design and accessibility, seemingly easy to reach outdoor spaces like parks, trails, and lakes are often beyond the grasp of many individuals with disabilities. By providing state of the art adaptive sports equipment, a thorough training program for staff and volunteers, accessible transportation and financial scholarships, OAS removes these barriers and makes the inaccessible accessible.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

OAS is working to remove the common and significant barriers for individuals with disabilities to gain equal access to the outdoors.

OAS maintains five key pillars to eliminate the major barriers for individuals to access the outdoors, these include:

Recruiting, training, and retaining high quality staff and volunteers.
Obtaining and maintaining state of the art adaptive sports equipment.
Providing accessible transportation to programs.
Offsetting any financial barriers through scholarships.
Developing and sustaining key partnerships.

OAS continues to improves its capabilities to achieve our organizational goals by steady and smart planning and growth. Recent years OAS has invested significant resources in training and equipment ensuring our participants are served in extremely high quality programs. OAS, as a leader among adaptive sports programs in the Pacific Northwest, continues to expand outreach and partnerships regionally to ensure access continues to grow for individuals with disabilities region wide.

OAS has seen tremendous progress in its 22 years of existence. In the words of one OAS participant "many people may not think that it is a great time and place to be paralyzed, but I think it's true." OAS continues to see increases of community recognition and investment in diversity, equity, and inclusion which is a clear indicator of progress. OAS has more than doubled it's participation numbers in the past five years and plans to continue to expand state wide outreach in the next 3-5 years.
