What is The Collective?
Established in 1985, we are a local 501c3, nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of individuals with developmental/intellectual and/or physical disabilities, as well as other members of our community who experience barriers to full participation to community life, with a focus on support, quality of life, and community inclusion. Central Oregon Collective (formerly RAP) has six residential homes in beautiful Bend, Oregon. We also offer outstanding in-home support, and community inclusion services. Our Community Center houses our leadership and administrative teams, Outreach, Community Inclusion (CIP), and Vocational Programs. Our center also functions as a meeting place for all of our partners engaged with bettering life for Central Oregonians.
We all have to make a living…how about using your work-week to make a tangible, long-lasting difference in the lives of others? At the Central Oregon Collective, we appreciate and take extra-special care of our employees! Browse our current openings and lets see if there’s a fit…we’d love to have you as part of our family!
Our vision and goal is to embrace the mission that the many other stellar organizations in our area are committed to. There is strength in numbers, and the Central Oregon Collective invites you to join our team of partners, to increase all our efforts for the betterment of humankind in Central Oregon and beyond.
