Vocational Rehabilitation (VR):

Vocational Rehabilitation helps eligible individuals with disabilities to achieve their employment goals.

  • Do you need help finding available employment opportunities during the COVID-19 pandemic?

  • Are you interested in preparing now for future employment?

Call your local VR office to apply for services and discuss your employment needs.

VR can also provide help with the following:

  • Exploring your employment interests and skills

  • Helping you to find your first job

  • Providing assistive technology or other services to help you keep your job

  • Re-entering employment in the same or different type of employment

  • Providing services necessary for career advancement

Please stay in contact with your VR Counselor to determine how we can best meet your employment needs. We also encourage individuals with disabilities to apply for VR services by contacting their local office.

The Bureau of Rehabilitation Services is actively working to develop and share ongoing guidance to assist in the delivery of services in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Please click here for the most up to date information regarding VR services.
