VOLUNTEERING

One of the ways Beach Buddies helps support individuals of all abilities in our community is finding a way to be connected and give back is by giving them support in finding valuable volunteering opportunities that quite often will help them identify skills and environments they like being in and that could eventually lead to meaningful and gainful employment.

VIRTUAL HANGOUTS

We’ve partnered with our friends BEST BUDDIES OREGON and are so grateful for the FRIENDSHIPS that have been built through our virtual hangouts. The pandemic presented us all with so many challenges and we all know life is better with buddies! Everyone is unique and different in their own way and brings value to the group. Message us if you are in Oregon and would like to join us!
