The Companion Program is a 501-C Non Profit licensed Provider Organization that serves the DD population in Washington, Multnomah, Clackamas and Yamhill Counties. We work closely with local DD County Offices and Local DD Brokerages. Most customers access funding through their “K” Plan, or may private pay for services. We are a community of Companion Providers who encourage and promote independence and healthy lifestyles by providing 1:1 supports to individuals with developmental disabilities. We do this by providing supports for customers, who want to participate in social/recreational activities, establish natural supports in their own communities, or work on ADLs/IADLs in their own homes. Based on each customers individual goals and interests (such as making friends, participating in new recreational activities, or learning a new skill), Companion Providers provide the needed support for the individual to be successful and become better self-advocates. Whatever the activity, Companion Providers will ensure that the person they are working with has an enjoyable and empowering experience.
