General Information

Supported Employment is the basis for all SERP services. SERP’s goal is to give all individuals who so choose the opportunity for employment at a reasonable wage.


Supported Employment Program

Individuals choosing employment will be assisted to find a job of their choice. Many methods may be used to arrive at the goal, including community-based assessment with opportunities to try out on some real jobs and do some job exploration in the community.

When appropriate, SERP partners with the Oregon Vocational Rehabilitation Department. With the assistance of skilled vocational rehabilitation counselors, additional supports are available to assure successful employment.

Works Program

The SERP Works program provides crew work for individuals who choose to work but are not independent enough to work on their own. Crews may include flyer delivery, parking lot maintenance, and others. The Works program is responsible for some of the building maintenance in two of the SERP offices. All participants are paid at least minimum wage for their work.
