What is the Compass Project?

The Office of Developmental Disabilities Services (ODDS) created the Compass Project to make Oregon's intellectual and developmental disabilities system more person-centered. We're refocusing on what each person needs to have a full life, based on their unique needs and goals. We call this effort the Compass Project.

Our goal is system that is easy to use, transparent and provides quality supports. We want people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to have a good life in their communities. The Compass Project is shifting the whole ODDS system to person-centered thinking and planning. This will enhance the lives of those who use and work in the ODDS system.
