Supported Employment


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 Supported Employment providers at mental health agencies across the state; conduct fidelity reviews; collect, evaluate and share outcome data; educate and advise local and State policymakers; 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 at the Rockville Research Institute, and Options for Southern Oregon (who administers the contract).
