With June coming to a close, Community Pathways is excited to be celebrating the beginning of summer with our Seven Corners Collaborative partners at Community Vision, FACT Oregon, and the Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities with a Summer Party this Wednesday, June 26th, 2-6pm.
Food, drinks, games, and raffle prize will be provided! The event is at Seven Corners (2475 SE Ladd Avenue). It's free and open to the public. We invite you to come celebrate with us!
As we enter our second year at the Seven Corners building, we are so grateful to collaborate with our wonderful building partners to help create a hub of information, resources, and support for individuals and families who experience disability.
We wish you all a fun, happy and safe summer!
Customer Story: Lawrence, an Artist at Work
Meet Lawrence, an artist living and working in Portland. Recently, Lawrence and his PSW Monica sat down with us to share about Lawrence's artistic practice, experience living in his own apartment, and the recent news of being chosen for the 2019 Field of View Residency at Public Annex. The residency will pay Lawrence, connect him with an artist mentor, and culminate in a gallery exhibition. Read the full interview with Lawrence here.
