When Parkinson’s Resources of Oregon was founded in 1980, the principles of peer support and the power of information were key to the mission, placing the client and client needs at the center of all interactions. Over the years, this community we serve has benefited immensely by the labors of dedicated volunteers and the partnerships of clinicians, researchers and service providers along the way.
PRO serves the residents of both Oregon and southern Washington from our offices in Beaverton, Eugene and Bend. What started as a single support group in 1980 has grown and flourished as visionary volunteers and instrumental philanthropists helped set direction and strategy to provide for the needs of thousands of individuals living with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.
We are governed by a volunteer board of directors and more than two hundred additional volunteers are active with our support groups, program planning, committee work, and office support.
