Adult Vocational Rehabilitation Services

ACCES-VR starts with the presumption that all persons with disabilities can benefit from vocational rehabilitation services and should have opportunities to work in jobs integrated within their communities. ACCES-VR Counselors guide individuals through service programs they need to reach their employment goals.

At Our District Office:

  • Each year ACCES-VR assists hundreds of businesses in hiring qualified, dependable employees.
  • Our handbook outlines eligibility requirements, next steps and services provided. 
  • Our offices are located in your community.  Each district office describes services specific to their office.
  • ACCES-VR works with students, families and school districts to coordinate appropriate services for students with disabilities who are leaving secondary education and entering adult vocational rehabilitation and related services.
  • If you design, manufacture, or sell equipment that may be useful by people with disabilities, or if you teach disabled people how to use such equipment, please contact ACCES-VR.
  • Independent living services can help people with disabilities learn to have more control over their own lives and to live more independently in their communities.
  • Expectations are described in our rights and responsibilities brochure.
