We are a trusted partner of the Clackamas County Social Services Division. Children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities (including their families) can rely on ALSO for support that is individualized, compassionate, and respectful. We are advocates for people with disabilities that consider our support services to be Heart Work.
ALSO has been guiding people in reaching their goals for a better life since 1997. Since then,
we’ve expanded services to include not only 24-hour residential care, but numerous state-of-theart programs, such as:
At ALSO, we know that the most effective way to provide high-quality employment, community living, and support services is to establish strong partnerships with all Oregon disability service organizations. The disability support services we offer in Clackamas County include the following:
Residential services are when someone has the need for continuous levels of support or supervision. As strong advocates for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities, we actively collaborate with families, employers, and community members. The result is that each person we support is treated as an individual who has the incredible potential to make valuable contributions to their community.
Supported living services are when individuals range in needs from a few hours per day or week to 24-hour assistance. People live independently and as safely as possible in their own home. These support services delivered by ALSO have had a positive impact throughout Oregon. As Brett Turner, CEO of ALSO, states, “We support people truly individually…it’s all about the person.” These person-centered services are geared toward disability supports that are specific to the goals and desires of the individual.
We offer employment services and have professional job coaches that help people with disabilities obtain meaningful employment with competitive wages. We know that the right employment empowers individuals. Therefore, we help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities find and prepare for jobs that fit their individual goals and abilities.
When individuals with intellectual or developmental and intellectual disabilities might qualify for Social Security benefits, there are resources in the community. Interested families and individuals with disabilities can contact specialists at Clackamas County Services for People with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities. Call 503-655-8640.
