Oregon Transformation & Capacity Building
The Oregon Transformation Project, funded by a grant from the Oregon Department of Human Services, Oregon Developmental Disability Services, launched in December 2014.
Through a combination of training, coaching and mentorship, we assist agencies with organizational change, transformation of services, and learning the essential skills to provide quality competitive integrated employment services.
Between January 2015 and December 2016, there has been a reduction of 233 people in project organizations. Seventy-two (72) people obtained competitive integrated jobs in the community and reached 90 days or more of employment. Additionally, the agencies increased their community employment teams by 56% during the same timeframe.
Progress can be viewed from “Voices from the Field” videos that were created with agencies showcasing people who had previously worked in sheltered workshops in their new community integrated jobs and their employers. The videos were filmed using iPhones and edited on iPads.
