We are located in Oregon and currently service individuals in the Portland metro and Lincoln County areas.  We were founded in 2016 by Drew Stinson and Rex Goode, who have a combined 35+ years experience working with individuals who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities. We recently hired an agency manager, Kathleen Garrett who has experience in residential management and working with children. Between Rex, Drew and Kathleen, there is over 60 combined years of dedicated service and experience between them.

Our direct support professionals come from a variety of backgrounds and experience. They all share a passion and enthusiasm for the work that we do. See some of our employee profiles linked to on this website.

    Good morning Arise agency,

    I have attended training and received my mentor certificate a few years ago. Unfortunately someone stole my belongings and my mentor certificate was taken. I have this on my resume for years and was able to show proof. Now I just started a new job and need another certificate please. I wasn’t sure who to reach out to regarding this matter and hopefully this is the right agency to inform about this matter. I took the training in MD. I can be reached by email or telephone at 202-766-2798. Please can you take into consideration of my urgency. I will be available at 12noon Mon-Fri. Due to I’m in training all this week for this new job.
    Warm Regards, Ms. Shawntai Johnson
