What We Do
Connecting people with disabilities with a workplace that offers supportive employment. WISE promotes and brings diversity to the workplace.
School to Work and Transition
Across the Pacific Northwest, school districts, the State Departments of Vocational Rehabilitation and Developmental Disabilities, and local counties collaborate to assist students in finding competitive integrated employment as they transition from High School to the workforce. This section provides information and materials that will help parents, students and teachers in making this transition as smoothly as possible.
Washington State Training and Technical Assistance
Technical assistance and training is funded by the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Administration, counties and other partners, with a focus on competitive integrated employment outcomes for high school transition students and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities as well as other disabilities.
North Dakota VR Pilot Project
In partnership with Minot State University, the state of North Dakota VR agency and four employment agencies, the Expanded Supported Employment project is designed to lead to integrated and competitive employment opportunities for individuals currently receiving day support services or those employed in segregated employment settings.
