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.

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.

How do I get started?

The sign-up process is different for each support group.
