The Institute on Disability & Development (IDD) at the Child Development and Rehabilitation Center is one of 67 University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, located in major universities throughout the U.S. We have a more than 40-year history of working to improve quality of life for people with disabilities and their families. We embrace the right of the persons with disabilities to determine the course of their lives and to live as fully integrated, contributing members of their communities.
DISABILITY RIGHTS OREGON (DRO) is a non-profit law office that provides advocacy and legal services to people with disabilities who have an issue related to their disability and that falls within our goals and priorities. Each year DRO sets its goals and priorities, with help from the disability community, to guide the work we do and to further our mission and vision.
The mission of the Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities is to create change that improves the lives of Oregonians with developmental disabilities. The Council envisions a state where all people from all the diverse populations of Oregon:
- Are valued equally
- Have the same legal and human rights
- Have self-determination, choice and control over their own lives
- Are included in community life
- Have the supports they need to live healthy, safe and fulfilling lives
