OMCMG Lunch and Learn Highlights

roadmapDisability Rights of Oregon (DRO) is a non-profit law firm that provides assistance for individuals with disabilities. They are designated as Oregon’s Protection and Advocacy (P&A) office. Each state has a P&A office funded by the Federal Government (DRO is not a governmental agency).

The P&A office has broad statutory powers to safe guard the human and civil rights of individuals with disabilities. DRO is “client driven” meaning that they support individuals with disabilities to have equal opportunities, full participation, and the ability to exercise meaningful choices (i.e. their own decisions to choose their educational paths, support systems, job choices, etc.).

DRO Services consist of 10 attorneys, 2 intake specialist, 3 advocates, lobbyist, 4 benefit planners and support staff. They are available statewide to more than 600, 000 Oregonians at no cost. DRO is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and the Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness programs (PAIMI) advisory council.

For more information please see the DRO website at: www.droregon.org
