Support Groups

Support groups can be an invaluable tool for growth and independence.

 Imagine receiving feedback and friendship from a community of peers who know first-hand what it’s like to experience disability. Amazing, right? They’ve been there. 

They understand. And they are trusted allies for the journey ahead.

Speak Up

Speak Up is a communication support group for adults who experience mild to moderate speech difficulties.

A speech therapist and a licensed clinical social worker guide each meeting. This group is run by St Charles and hosted by Abilitree.

Meets the 4th Thursday of every month from 11am-noon at Abilitree headquarters

Moving A Head

Moving A Head is a support group for survivors of traumatic brain injuries. 

Family members and caregivers are invited to attend.

Moving A Head meets every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month 5pm-6:30pm at Abilitree headquarters.

What can I expect?

Our support groups are peer-driven. Participants build community and learn through shared experiences.

  • Each group meets at Abilitree headquarters in Bend.
  • Our groups can accommodate a support person if needed.
  • Each support group is a safe place to share your feelings. Abilitree will always be a judgment-free zone.
