About our Services
Up and Out is a non-profit 501(c)(3) agency. We are committed to ensuring that our clients live as independently as possible while assisting them with their day-to-day needs according to the Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR). Up and Out assists our clients to live a productive and fulfilling lifestyle based on each individual's idea of what fulfilling means. We honor that our clients' have the same rights as anyone and we strive to empower them towards self-advocacy. This concept is the foundation of our Life Enrichment Classes in which we have built on our clients' knowledge base for making healthy and safe decisions for themselves as well as in the relationships in their lives.

Up and Out currently provides 24-hour residential support to individuals in six group homes throughout Southeast Portland and Gresham. Although 24-hour support is provided, we are committed to assisting adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities live in an environment that focuses on each individuals' goals towards independence.
Supported Living

We also provide support to adults that live in their own homes or with family members to ensure they receive the support and community integration they desire. Residents in all of our programs received a variety of individualized training programs and assistance in accessing integrated community leisure and learning opportunities.

Areas of support might include:

Independent living skills such as taking public transportation, medication administration, financial budgeting/resource planning, health and safety skills, community access and engagement, and activities of daily living.

Our residents also participate in many activities throughout Oregon and beyond including Special Olympics, Portland Parks and Recreation events, Upward Bound Camp, and Trips, Inc.
