Promoting community jobs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
When people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) work in their communities, everyone succeeds. With the right job and supports, everyone can work. I Work We Succeed is part of the outreach efforts by Oregon’s Employment First initiative to promote the benefits of paid, integrated work in community jobs for people with I/DD.
Oregon’s Employment First initiative is a catalyst for state agencies to work together to improve community job outcomes for people with I/DD. Cooperating agencies include the Oregon Department of Education and the Department of Human Services’ Vocational Rehabilitation and Office of Developmental Disability Services. Many other partners and stakeholders, including the Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities, are also united in these efforts.
