Supporting individuals with diverse abilities…their vision is our mission.
Bottom Line for Portland
1 in 4 Oregonians has a disability.
We know that people with disabilities face higher unemployment rates, often struggle with social isolation and are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19. At Exceed we aim to get individuals with diverse abilities out into the community, whether it’s through paid employment, volunteer opportunities, or fun activities with peers. Donating to Exceed Enterprises is an investment in our Oregon community, uplifting individuals who face barriers to employment and fostering inclusion and diversity in the places where we live and work.
“It gives me something to do, something I enjoy to do, and it keeps me busy. I get along with all the coworkers there, and they’re all nice. If there was no Exceed Enterprises, I’d probably be sitting at home.” -Terri, Exceed Client
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Diversity is our Heritage
At Exceed we are engaged in the purposeful work of a workplace that represents the diversity of thoughts and values that come from the richness of our varied backgrounds. By growing diverse thoughts and values, we will better serve our clients and staff. We support individuals in achieving their vision for themselves across all abilities, races, genders, and identities.
