The mission of CCER is to foster and exemplify excellence in rehabilitation throughout the Pacific NW and beyond in order to increase employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
CCER offers a variety of training programs, technical assistance, consultation, and human resource development services to enable rehabilitation organizations and personnel to more effectively serve individuals with disabilities. CCER is one of ten regional Technical Assistance and Continuing Education (TACE) Centers funded by the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) to provide information, training, and technical assistance in Vocational Rehabilitation. Through the DBTAC Northwest, CCER also provides information, training, and technical assistance on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The staff at CCER are committed to offering quality services responsive to the current needs of our customers.
Participants in CCER activities include vocational rehabilitation counselors and administrators, community rehabilitation and mental health providers, people with disabilities, advocates, families, employers, educators, government representatives, and other community leaders.
Many of the activities and events are subsidized by federal grants and are offered for a nominal fee. Some programs also offer stipends for travel and housing costs.
