On the Road with Partner Cafe (OTR) is a 501(c)3 “Boots on the Ground Direct Service Mobile Team” – distributing information, sharing resources and bringing “social” services to communities near and far.
Our core function draws on the activities and guidance gathered from a consortium of professional providers and community leaders – recognizing their interdependence in responding to the needs of diverse communities.
Disabilities are life-altering
They challenge ones daily existence -those born with them, the care teams working to help make our lives better and those who acquired one through an illness, aging or accident. Yet one thing rings true – everyone has a right to a life of dignity and self-determination. A life on their own terms in an inclusive, compassionate and always-learning society.
We are a direct service mobile team of Social and Human Service professionals. We host resource tables at events in Pierce and Thurston County, coordinating with our Community Partners to provide information to individuals and connecting them to services that meet their needs.
We exist to bring city, state and federal agencies, along with nonprofit organization and self-advocates together in one place - to meet people, wherever they are, providing them access to information and resources, walking with them one on one.
Our vision is to expand On The Road with PartnerCafe to all corners of Washington State and beyond- to connect people to information and resources and respond to the needs of diverse communities near and far. We want to be able to go where ever we are needed.
