Lane County Senior & Disabled Services (SDS)
We are now looking for new team members for our half dozen wonderful, amazing careworkers. Interested in finding out more? Just email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call or text 458-205-9426.
For additional information about me and our amazing team, see below.
Here is why this is one of the best work places on Earth!
David W. Oaks has worked for more than 47 years as a disability activist, mainly on mental health, and now on all disabilities. He has also worked in the peace and environmental movements. He co-founded MindFreedom International, one of the main independent human rights coalitions for mental health. He was director for 25 years of this Eugene-based nonprofit. He has spoken widely in more than 12 countries.
In December 2012 he had a major fall and has about nine severe disabilities, however, he is still an activist and writer. His main interest now is the intersection between our environmental crisis, disability, disaster preparation, and climate silence. He has started a consulting business, Aciu! Institute. David’s home office is in a quarter-acre small eco-home called Mad Swan, with his wife tremendous Debra, and their cat Bongo.
Ideally, a job candidate already has a provider number from Senior & Disabled Services of Lane County. But this position has brought people brand new to this career on board, for both training and certification.
