An Oregon Medicaid Agency Supporting Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

About Us

By Stephen Rex Goode

We are ARISE Mentors, LLP. We are a provider ageny in the developmental disabilities system of the State of Oregon.

We provide personal support to developmentally disabled children and adults in the areas of independent living and inclusion in the community. We provide these supports in the form of skills training, providing cues to help individuals practice skills, and stand-by support while individuals try to put their learning into practice.

What supports a customer receives will depend on a set of goals written in conjunction with a personal agent or case manager. These are based on the customer’s interests and needs.

More concretely, this could include anything from grocery shopping to assistance with community resources such as doctors and government agencies. It could also include social activities and developing relationships. It might involve helping customers find safe and affordable housing.

We support customers in expressive and receptive communication. That’s a fancy way of saying that we help customers learn how to express themselves to be understood as well as to understand what others are trying to say to them.

Our directors have about 25 years of combined experience in the field. Our employees will be well-supervised, well-trained, friendly, and effective.

Feel free to contact us and ask questions.
