No Cost: Our services are always free to employers; we are an Oregon Vocational Rehabilitation vendor for tracks 1, 2, and 3.
Dependable Employees: Our job seekers are motivated people who take pride in their work and the organizations that employ them.
Economic Incentives: The federal government provides a Work Opportunity Tax Credit for businesses who hire people with disabilities.
Increased Diversity: Working alongside employees with disabilities promotes an inclusive work environment for everyone. Employees with disabilities are able to display their creativity and problem-solving that can resonate with co-workers.

People with disabilities have many strengths to contribute, and the job has been targeted by the individual and support team with careful planning to make sure it's a good fit.
