Dear Families and Providers,
Recently, PASS board of directors met and agreed upon changing our current inclement weather closure policy. Recently, PASS has been closing along with Tri-Met Lift but these last few winters, they have not shown the timeliness or decision making logic we would have liked to have seen. Because of this, it has forced us to close days that they were open for the best interest and safety of our staff and clients. Because of this, starting 2/8/2019, PASS Portland will now be closing along with Portland Public Schools and PASS Milwaukie will be closing along with the North Clackamas School District. Of course, PASS reserves the right to keep one or both locations open during a school closure at the discretion of the administration. A statement will be posted on our Facebook to inform you of our status. PASS will also not honor delayed openings, instead asking that you use your best judgement if early day conditions seem dangerous and to bring or send your participant at a later time.
When PASS started in 1997 there was a long waiting list for services. Individuals in our part of the DD spectrum were told it might be up to 25 years before their name was “called.” Thus PASS was started, the Day Program began operations on January 19, 1998.
We began as a private pay organization with families on the honor system for the expected $600 per month fee for a full time individual. Fundraising was to cover any income gap. Fortunately, we had essentially free space ($1 per month from Portland Adventist Medical Center) and free management / leadership (Warren and Evvalee Rushold). This was the beginning of our adventure . . .
