Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) provides a variety of services to individuals with disabilities in order to assist individuals to gain, maintain, or retain employment. VR is a public, eligibility program administered through the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA).

Getting a job is the goal of our vocational rehabilitation program. The job seeking process begins with an evaluation of your interests, abilities and aptitudes for different types of jobs. Your counselor may provide assistance in resume preparation, interviewing skills, developing job leads, and job placement. Your counselor will also contact you after you start work to help make sure that your job is suitable for you and your employer.

All eligible individuals accepted for services. regardless of their financial resource, receive services which include assessments to determine eligibility, vocational guidance and counseling services. referral services, and job placement services. Based on the individual’s available resources, an eligible individual may be required to help.
