We assist individuals with disabilities in getting and keeping a job that matches their skills, interests and abilities. VR staff works in partnership with the community and businesses to develop employment opportunities for people with disabilities. VR is a state and federally sponsored program which assists people with all types of disabilities, with the exception of Blindness or Deaf-Blindness, in all areas of the state.

For folks interested in becoming a participant, you will be scheduled with a vocational rehabilitation counselor for an initial meeting and signing of an application with VR. After the application is signed, VR has 60 days to determine if you are eligible for services. Eligibility determination will be based upon disability-related function loss that requires to VR to provide supports and services that will ameliorate disability specific barriers to employment for the participant.
