Sammy’s Place was founded in 2006 as an Oregon 501(c)(3) organization. The original mission included providing respite to families with children experiencing disability.
In 2014, the mission was expanded to include the creation of a nature-centered living, working, and respite business model for people who experience disability and those who share their journey, working and living along-side.
Sammy’s Place seeks to empower those who experience disability by creating opportunities to engage with the extraordinary natural environments of the North Coast of Oregon and the surrounding communities.
There’s also a great need for affordable housing and opportunities for our community members that experience disability. Sammy’s Place is working towards providing alternative options for adults with disabilities.
In September 2017, Sammy’s Place became the sponsor of the 13th annual Buddy Walk at the Beach. Local and national supporters have successfully raised $80,000. Sammy’s Place held its first Strategic Planning Retreat in December 2015 to chart a course for how to achieve its near-term goals and still continues to refine the long-term vision.
