What We Do

 

Community Vision works to make Oregon a place where all people with disabilities can live, work, and thrive in the communities of their choice. We support individuals through employment, supported living, and financial education.

Dream Builders Alliance is a grass roots effort to provide empowerment, education, and community opportunities to transition-aged youth, 16-21. We work to connect participants to post-secondary education, housing and employment options. Participants are also provided an introduction to adult support services that emphasizes individual choice and full community inclusion.

 

Opportunities for service with us

 

Dream Builders Alliance welcomes new mentors to support young adults with disabilities form meaningful relationships, encourage empowerment, and build inclusive communities. Mentors can learn more here: http://cvision.org/you-can-help/volunteer/become-a-mentor/.

 

As a volunteer, you will develop a fun, safe, and engaging relationship with a young adult who experiences disability. Young adults in this program are ready to get out into the community, contributing their wide range of goals, interests, and dreams with those at work, school, home, and you!

Each meet up will create a unique experience based on mutual interests to build towards their dreams and goals.Throughout the six-month weekly commitment, mentors will support individual goals such as:

  • Learning and practicing graphic design & computer skills
  • Going to art museums or galleries
  • Studying at a local coffee shop
  • Job shadowing at a restaurant
  • Riding public transit
