Employment Services

With offices in Corvallis and Salem, our Employment services have a rich tradition of individual coaching and teaching employment-related social skills in tandem with the job itself. Over the years, this approach has been instrumental in sustaining long-term, community based employment for dozens of individuals whose behavioral challenges were initially at odds with their desire to maintain employment.

In accordance with our philosophy toward individuals we serve as equal, not separate, in 2012, well before the mandate, Work Unlimited eliminated minimum wage waivers so the individuals we serve achieved wage parity with all others in the workplace.

Oregon’s “Employment First” initiative is providing us with new challenges and opportunities to enhance our services, both to individuals and to our community. Visit http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/EMPLOYMENT/EMPLOYMENT-FIRST/Pages/index.aspx to learn more about Oregons' vision for the future of employement services.  Our staff work hand in hand with Oregon's Vocational Rehabilitation staff to secure paid employment, offering Discovery and Job Shadowing services to include individualized training to match each employer's performance specifications.
