Principles of Self Determination

 Services of the Eastern Oregon Support Services Brokerage are based on the principles of self-determination:

People will have the ability, along with freely chosen family and friends, to plan their own lives, with necessary support, rather than purchase a pre-packaged program.

People will have the ability to control a certain sum of dollars in order to purchase their supports.

 Support and Autonomy:
People will have the opportunity to arrange resources and personnel - both formal and informal - that will assist them to live a life in the community that is rich in social associations and contribution.

People  will have the opportunity to accept a valued role in their community through competitive employment, organization affiliation, spiritual development, general caring for others in the community, as well as accountability for spending public dollars in ways that are life enhancing.
