Who Is OSECE?

The Oregon Supported Employment Center for Excellence (OSECE) was created in 2008 as part of Oregon’s Supported Employment Initiative to provide technical assistance to mental health agencies providing IPS Supported Employment; conduct fidelity reviews; collect, evaluate and share outcome data; educate and advise local and state policy makers; and coordinate media coverage of success stories.

The Center is funded through a contract with the Oregon Health Authority/ Health Systems Division and is operated in partnership with the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, the IPS Employment Center, and Options for Southern Oregon (who administers the contract).
