Vocational Rehabilitation: Helping People Work

We give our clients the skills and tools necessary for successful employment.  We work with businesses throughout Oregon who are committed to hiring/retaining skilled, dedicated and highly qualified Oregonians who experience vision loss.

We work as a team to ensure successful employment. The concept is simple: our clients work in partnership with a counselor to identify any obstacles to employment, and then develop an individualized plan for employment.

Youth/Transition Services

We work with students 16 and older to help insure a successful transition from high school to college or the workforce. 

We provide a Summer Work Experience Program (SWEP) for transition students.  In this program, students live in a dorm setting, work 30 hours a week in paid work experiences, learn and preform an array of daily living skills (cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc.) and engage in enriching recreational activities.  Students who attend this program regularly report that it is a very positive and life changing experience.
