These stories show how people across Oregon are working with VR to achieve their career goals.
"Since starting VR, my life has changed in every way."
Thanks to a partnership between Oregon Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) and the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, Tribal member Amanda Freeman is following her dream of owning her own photography business and using her talents to help the Grand Ronde Tribal community and Indigenous people everywhere.
"Since starting VR, my life has changed in every way," said Freeman, 34. "VR really helped me recognize who I could be and my full potential."
With VR support, she also got a part-time job with the Tribe as Resource Coordinator for
Missing & Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP). She is able to use her photography and design skills to raise awareness about a cause she is passionate about.
