The Work Continues

The last two years have been very difficult for everyone, and we have had to face different barriers, due to the pandemic. And for us at NWDSA/ABI there have also been barriers. But thanks to technology and our efforts we have been able to continue our creative support through Zoom, email, and by phone. And through these platforms we have been able to continue to provide individual supports, trainings, resources, and information.

The pandemic took a small toll on the focus of our work, but our mission and values as an organization remain strong, and we continue to work to create and nurture a loving and inclusive community celebrating each person who experiences a disability. We always recognize how important it is that our community of families have access to high quality, up-to-date and relevant information that is presented with respect, and that is understandable to all, so that everyone has the opportunity to make informed decisions.

We have partnered with various community members to raise the voice and needs of our Hispanic/Latino families who have loved ones experiencing a disability in these times of pandemic.

Thanks to funding we received from the Oregon Health Authority, we have been able to focus on some barriers presented by COVID-19. And we have developed materials in Spanish to increase knowledge and create awareness about how to fight COVID-19 in our community.
These are difficult times, but you are not alone. For information, support, and resources in Spanish I invite you to visit our website at www.abicommunity.org/espanol/, which has resources in Spanish, or you can contact me at 503-262-4029 or mrangel@nwdsa.org.
