  • Think beyond the label

    Think beyond the labelThe Oregon Vocational Rehabilitation Services Department (OVRS) represents one of Oregon's greatest untapped labor pools: skilled, motivated, responsible men and women - willing workers - who happen to have disabilities.

    Motivated, Reliable, Dependable. What every employer is looking for in an employee. We understand employers need to find and employ the best candidates. They're not looking for a handout, just the same thing that other job candidates hope for: A chance to prove themselves.

OVRS State Plan for Services
In keeping with the federal Rehabilitation Act, OVRS develops and annually updates a state plan for delivery of vocational rehabilitation services throughout Oregon. The plan, which OVRS develops in partnership with the State Rehabilitation Council (SRC), outlines the office’s goals and priorities for the forthcoming federal year; reports on the office’s performance, accomplishments and activities for the past federal year; and, addresses various technical requirements.

In developing the plan, OVRS and SRC seek input from allied programs and organizations and the public; review OVRS’s most recent comprehensive needs assessment; and, consider other information, including the results of SRC’s periodic consumer satisfaction survey. Links to the two most recent state plan updates can be found below.
