On-the-Move has been called “the happiest place in the world!” Whereas most programs serving individuals with disabilities are site-based programs where activities occur each day at a specific location, On-the-Move is a community-based program where we are active citizens participating in shaping our local culture. We do not stay behind closed doors!
On-the-Move activities have a health and wellness focus. Many groups volunteer for animal welfare organizations, exercise, go hiking, visit art galleries, farmer’s markets, and do cooking projects. We avoid the mall and fast food! We do lots of volunteer projects and always make a positive impact on our community. We educate ourselves and others on how to be respectful and responsible towards the environment.
While we are out making a difference in the world, community members who may not be familiar with inclusive practices can learn from us! We use the word integration because we facilitate a two-way exchange; integration is more than inclusion!
