The Future: A Vision for Oregon

Employment First

The intent of this project is to improve opportunities for individualized community-based employment for Oregonians with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.

We Believe…

  • Everyone can work and there is a job for everyone. Our job is to be creative and tenacious in providing support.
  • Not working should be the exception. All individuals, schools, families, and businesses must raise their expectations.
  • People will be hired because of their ability not because they have a disability.
slide4

Communities embrace people who contribute.

  • Everyone has something to contribute and needs to contribute.
  • People are healthier, safer, and happiest with meaningful work.
  • True employment is not a social service.
  • Employment is a win/win for everybody.

Beliefs created 9/2/10 by a group of Oregon Statewide leaders.

the dignity of risk
The Dignity of Risk

What if you never got to make a mistake?

What if your money was always kept in an envelope where you couldn’t get it?

What if you were never given a chance to do well at something?

What if you were always treated like a child?

What if your only chance to be with people different from you was with your own family?

slide10

What if the job you did was not useful?

What if you never got to make a decision?

What if the only risky thing you could do was to act out?

What if you took the wrong bus once and now you aren’t allowed to take another one?

What if you worked and you got 46 cents an hour?

slide11

What if you had no privacy?

What if you could do part of the grocery shopping, but weren’t allowed to do any because you weren’t able to do all the shopping?

What if you grew old and never knew adulthood?

What if you never got a chance?
