Mission Statement

Orion offers hope for individuals and families experiencing hardship due to poverty, disability, or illness by building bridges that lead to self reliance.

Description

Orion Communities provides support services to the most vulnerable women, men and children in our community. Initially for individuals with developmental and/or physical disabilities, Orion’s focus expanded to serve those in poverty. Orion is known for assisting the ’poorest of the poor’ and people who fall through the cracks of the social service safety net. Orion focuses on the pressing and immediate needs of our clients and identifying systemic challenges and engaging community interest to address these macro issues.
