Right away its felt like a hometown reunion! Stacey Cloud and two of Home of Hope’s team members greeted me with hugs and a request to take a picture with their travelling gnome. Being the good sport that I am, I happily agreed…so did Ther-Bear. He loves any opportunity to get in front of the camera.
Therap has a new agency in Oregon…go figure! SISO (Supported Independence Services Of Oregon) has joined the Therap family and we are mighty happy that they did!
SISO is a community based organization, that provides innovative residential adult foster care services to intellectually and developmentally disabled adults in Lane County. SISO opened their doors in 2006 with the purchase of one family home and a contract to serve one individual and 0 employees. The agency has been very successful supporting highly challenging individuals, and has continued to grow their organization out of their passion to provide the best possible individualized supports based around positive behavior supports and the principle of self determination. The company currently operate 5 homes and support 24 people with over 50 employees. Their focus is twofold: 1.) To provide the highest quality person centered services that meet the complex and changing needs of the supported individual. 2.) To ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, reaches their full potential in safe, supervised settings.
Therap is excited to be working with Jackie, Mark, Mary and the SISO team to improve their documentation expectations and increase quality in their services.
Welcome SISO family to the Therap family! Allison and I look forward to working with you!!!!!
