NEW PARTICIPANTS If a participant is new to the AIR community outing program or has not participated in an outing for a year or more, an individual orientation will need to be done after registration, and prior to the first outing. Orientations are scheduled with AIR staff and are done at the AIR office. A Participant Assessment Form is required for participation in the AIR community outings and special interest classes. Neither of the above is required for the weekly bowling program or monthly dance since they are drop-in programs and registration is not required. The safety and well-being of all participants and staff is of utmost importance. Therefore, AIR staff will assess each individual’s ability to be safe in the community and will make recommendations accordingly. Alternative strategies and resources will be utilized whenever possible to support an individual’s successful participation in an activity. Aggressive and challenging behaviors that put self or others at risk are not suitable for a community setting. Some activities may not be advisable due to physical inaccessibility and skill requirements. AIR staff will review an individual’s needs and skills on a case-by-case basis. PP&R staff may provide personal care for participants with disabilities if they are registered for a PP&R activity in the brochure sections of Pre-School and Youth. AIR staff can administer medication and assist with basic feeding, except for tube feeding. If AIR staff is asked to administer either over the counter or prescription medication, the guardian must sign a release form and information sheet prior to the activity. The guardian must give the medication to the AIR staff. We can not accept medication from the Tri-Met LIFT drivers. If an individual needs personal assistance with mobility, please call the AIR office prior to registration. There is no registration cost for personal assistants who come with participants as an accommodation, although they will need to pay for any additional meals, supplies, or admission fees. All AIR programs are wheelchair accessible unless otherwise stated. Staff requests no perfume or fragrances at AIR activities. Community Outing Policy In an effort to keep groups small, excursions include only nine to eleven participants. The outings use one van, which is wheelchair accessible. Staff ratio is usually 1 staff for every 3 participants. A smaller ratio may be available upon request. Participants need to stay with AIR staff at all times. Appropriate behavior is expected throughout the activity. Because of the limited number of spaces available, each group/foster home or day program is limited to three people per trip. You may ask to put additional people on the waiting list. We are not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items during activities. Adaptive and Inclusive Recreation (AIR) does not allow participants, staff or volunteers to drink alcohol or use illegal drugs while participating, working, or volunteering in activities. This includes community outing locations where alcohol is served.

Please remember that all AIR outings are done as a group activity. Participants must stay with AIR staff at all times no matter how independent they are. Because this is a group activity, participants may not get to do everything they want because of the needs of the whole group. Accessibility Door-to-door transportation to AIR activities may be available through the Tri-Met Lift program. Call them at 503-962-8200 for more information. Let us know if you need a sign language interpreter or FM Loop amplifier in order to participate in a Portland Parks & Recreation program, activity, or service. Please call at least five working days in advance so that arrangements can be made. Services are free. Call AIR at 503-8234328 V/TTY. See page 4 for PP&R Inclusion Services information.

City Budget Update by Jennifer Yocom, Community Relations Manager, Portland Parks & Recreation As you may know, the City of Portland is facing a $25 million deficit for Possible 10% reduction fiscal year 2013-14. FY 2013-14 Several factors have impacted this deficit including the Multnomah County Library District, the recent Department of Justice settlement, and budget notes from the FY 2012-13 Adopted Budget. With that, the Mayor and City Council have asked all City bureaus, including Parks, to develop a budget based on 90% of their current budget (the Current Appropriation Level). That means Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) faces up to a 10% cut in programs and services. While we don’t know what PP&R’s final budget will be at this point, it is possible that certain programs will be changed, reduced or eliminated, or fees will increase to help cover costs.

Community Centers Offer Teen Programs Portland Parks & Recreation has lots of exciting programs for teens up to 18 years old, located at local community centers. Several of the centers have a Teen Services coordinator who plans activities such as trips, performing arts, sports, fitness and weekly social activities. To get involved look at the guide from your local community center, register for an activity and let the site know if you need an accommodation in order to participate.

Follow the process at www., and find out more about community budget forums where you can testify at www. The City’s final budget should be adopted in June and implemented on July 1, 2013, the first day of the new fiscal year. The work of PP&R—its parks, natural areas, community centers, and programming—daily and directly affect the lives of Portland residents. Follow what’s happening and consider attending and testifying at public meetings about the issues important to you. Register On-Line at

So long for now from Debbie After 33 years of working at the best job possible, I will be retiring June 1st. I started working for Portland Parks & Recreation in March of 1980. A lot has changed in 33 years. The program had two name changes. When I started the name of the program was Specialized Recreation. Later it was changed to Disabled Citizens Recreation (DCR) and then to Adaptive and Inclusive Recreation (AIR). In 1980, the only participants served had developmental disabilities, I had never heard of Autism. Now AIR serves people of all ages who have any type of disability/ special need. Providing inclusion services was a concept that was just starting to be 1980’s talked about around the nation. The term use to be mainstreaming, then integration. Now PP&R provides people with the opportunity to have an accommodation in any class that they register for. I want to give a big thank you to all of the great staff and volunteers that I have worked with over the years. And to the parents who trusted me with their children, no matter how far away I took them on a community outing or off to camp Ky-O-Wa. What will I do in the future? I have always had a passion for working with animals. I even wanted to be a veterinarian for a while. I plan to volunteer with animal programs. I look forward to having more time to ride my horse, walk my dog, work out and practice all of the musical instruments that I play. Of course there are friends to see and house/yard work. I will miss the wonderful friendships I have had with the program participants. I wish you all the best, and please continue to enjoy what Portland Parks & Recreation has to offer. Go out and have fun! Debbie
