Oregon Launches I Work, We Succeed Campaign
Oregon Department of Human Services just launched its “I Work, We Succeed campaign” as part of their Employment First initiative. This initiative is a catalyst for state agencies to work together to improve community job outcomes for people with I/DD. According to the “I Work We Succeed” webpage, “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 effort by Oregon’s Employment First initiative to promote the benefits of paid, integrated work in community jobs for people with I/DD.”
