About OTAC

Incor­po­rated in 1984, Ore­gon Tech­ni­cal Assis­tance Cor­po­ra­tion (OTAC) is a non­profit 501 ( c ) ( 3 ) orga­ni­za­tion based in Salem, Ore­gon. Through myr­iad projects and ini­tia­tives in Ore­gon and across the coun­try, OTAC brings its mis­sion state­ment to life everyday.


OTAC pro­motes full par­tic­i­pa­tion in com­mu­nity life for indi­vid­u­als with dis­abil­i­ties, seniors and their fam­i­lies through the deliv­ery of train­ing, tech­ni­cal assis­tance and related services.


OTAC’s mis­sion state­ment reflects the belief that all indi­vid­u­als must be included in their com­mu­nity and that com­mu­ni­ties are enhanced by the par­tic­i­pa­tion of all of their members.

Ser­vice Deliv­ery Strategies

OTAC is com­mit­ted to assist­ing in the devel­op­ment of sup­ports and asso­ci­ated sys­tems that enable indi­vid­u­als with long-term care needs to live life to the fullest. OTAC uses a vari­ety of strate­gies to ful­fill this man­date. Our pri­mary strate­gies are to:

  1. Pro­vide state of the art infor­ma­tion about ser­vices, sup­ports and evidenced-based prac­tices to indi­vid­u­als with long-term care needs, their fam­i­lies and Provider Organizations.
  2. Sup­port the devel­op­ment of sys­tems and infra­struc­tures that can be suc­cess­fully imple­mented in communities.
  3. Work col­lab­o­ra­tively to pro­vide train­ing and tech­ni­cal assis­tance that will enable indi­vid­u­als with long-term care needs, their fam­i­lies and Provider Orga­ni­za­tions to directly uti­lize infor­ma­tion and apply new skills.
  4. Col­lab­o­rate with gov­ern­men­tal orga­ni­za­tions on a local, county and statewide basis to pro­mote the suc­cess­ful imple­men­ta­tion of pol­icy that reflects con­tem­po­rary prac­tice in the field of long-term care.
