The Dirkse Difference

Since 1997, Heidi Dirkse-Graw, MS, CRC, LPC has lead a team of dedicated professionals committed to making a difference in the lives of people who experience disability through employment. Our staff seek to engage the local business community to break down attitudinal barriers by changing the perception of (dis) ability. Dirkse CC has built an employer network of over 450 employers in the Portland area and is involved with several chambers of commerce.

I highly recommend Dirkse for providing employment opportunities to individuals with disabilities. They are extremely knowledgeable regarding candidates and have proven invaluable in assisting us in finding job openings that are a good match. We have had great success hiring individuals with disabilities, both on the production floor and in our office environment. The teams where Dirkse has partnered with us to hire individuals with disabilities have gained dependable, flexible, and skilled team members and the individuals have gained independence and earn a living wage. In this way we support our core values of stewardship and collaboration, by helping to sustain the community we live in and promote inclusivity.
