On Thursday, October 24, 2019, we had an amazing time hosting our very first “AbilityAware Business Awards Happy Hour."
The event was held at the Armory in Downtown Portland. We celebrated businesses that are committed to employing Oregonians who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities. It was empowering (and fun) to hang hang out with so many leaders, innovators and advocates! Thanks to everyone who attended or helped with the event!
UCP Oregon’s Employment Solutions department assists job-seekers who experience disabilities to find meaningful jobs in the community. Once the individual has the job, we can provide initial training and on-going supports as needed—all with the goal of ensuring the newly hired employee is as independent as possible.
