Story
Tagline
The voice of Oregon providers, advocating for people with disabilities since 1967
Introduction
The Oregon Rehabilitation Association (ORA) was formed in 1967 by nonprofit community agencies. For 46 years, ORA has been the voice of providers, successfully advocating for people with disabilities in ways that truly make a difference in their lives.

Our more than 100 member organizations are located throughout the state. Their 3,000 employees provide community residential and employment supports to more than 7,000 people with disabilities.
 
ORA envisions a world in which all people with disabilities are consistently and competently supported within families, neighborhoods, and communities.
 
Mission: The Oregon Rehabilitation Association represents and supports its members: nonprofit community organizations that support people with disabilities.
