The Interfaith Disabilities Network of Oregon invites you to share information about your program. We’re working on a “Best Practices Guide” to welcoming people with disabilities within their religious organization. If you have a program that has been successful, or ideas that have worked particularly well in providing an inclusive setting for children and adults with special needs, please tell us about it. We’d love to feature your success in future postings.
Kindly send information to InterfaithDisabilitiesofOregon@gmail.com
We look forward to sharing your success!

About the Oregon Caregiver Training Initiative
The Oregon Caregiver Training Initiative, funded by the state of Oregon, is a broad scale initiative designed to provide consistent, standardized, evidence-based caregiver training which is currently not available to all caregiver segments or areas of the state. The growing aging population and those with disabilities has emphasized the overwhelming need for a well-trained workforce and the development of additional community resources for both professional and family caregivers. The goal of the Initiative is to help caregivers understand how to best manage the care, services and support for the people they care for and love; helping them to improve the lives and care of aging Oregonians.
In response to this need, the Caregiver Training Initiative will provide caregivers access to no cost, quality education in all corners of the state. Caregivers will have the opportunity to train with top notch experts in the fields of Alzheimer’s and related dementias, safe medication management and challenging behaviors. Both online and in person classes are available to allow flexibility for busy schedules, and qualified professional caregivers can earn free CEUs.
Oregon Care Partners, LLC (OCP) is a consortium made up of a group of lead organizations, facilitators and collaborators that have a longstanding history of working together collaboratively on training and quality initiatives and successfully providing caregiver training.
Your voice can help others by spreading the word! Please share this information with other caregivers and give them the opportunity to learn effective ways to deliver care and support to the people in their care.
