OESCo News
     OESCo is a non-profit business oriented corporation that works in partnership with employers to support wage-based work opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities.

     The vision of the Oregon Employment Services Corporation (OESCO) is to work in partnership with families, businesses, and a diversity of public and private funding agencies to provide long-term quality employment opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities. The focus of our effort is to promote mutually beneficial opportunities for companies and individuals with significant cognitive disabilities who have traditionally been excluded from employment in community settings.

   The focus of our effort includes,
  1. helping individuals with significant cognitive disabilities find regular and ordinary jobs in community settings and
  2. helping the Metropolitan Portland business community use supported employment as a resource for ongoing employment needs.
