Why seek VR services?

Individualized services are provided at offices all over the state and may include:

Assessment for eligibility, career exploration and planning for employment;

Disability management through therapies, treatments, procedures or assistive devices;

Training to enhance skills through instruction and work experiences in our offices, on worksites, or through educational partnerships;

Job search to help you find competitive employment, and support you once you are on the job.

Why partner with VR?

VR clients have skills, drive, loyalty and dependability. Services that help you tap into this talent pool may include:

Job matching that connects you with qualified, pre-screened candidates;

Outsource/training partnerships to meet your needs for quality products or services, and help the clients learn fundamental work skills;

Internships, apprenticeships and on the job training which fill any specific knowledge or skills gap at initial employment;

Post employment and job retention services to keep valuable employees with disabilities;

Tax credits and other financial incentives for training, orientation and accommodation.

Everything I learned at VR had a single common thread, and that was: put you back to work.
