About ARISE Mentors, LLP


ARISE Mentors, LLP has operated as a “Provider Organization” through the state’s Support Services for Adults with Developmental Disabilities Program. This program is the offshoot of a court decision requiring the state to expand its services to people with developmental disabilities.

The DHS program contracts with social service agencies statewide to act as “brokerages” and county CDDPs that conduct assessments of adults with developmental disabilities, prepare an Individual Support Plan (ISP) with them, and help them obtain services they need from a network of community providers.

As a provider organization under the DHS program, ARISE Mentors, LLP has served Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, and Lincoln counties and are hoping to expand to serve other counties as circumstances change. ARISE Mentors, LLP owners bring more than 30 years of experience providing services to the special needs community.
