Vocational Rehabilitation

Vocational Rehabilitation programs help people with disabilities prepare for, find or retain employment and help youth and students prepare for post-secondary opportunities. The programs also help businesses and employers recruit, retain and accommodate employees with disabilities.

If you have a physical, mental, or emotional disability that affects your ability to obtain or maintain employment, you may be eligible for our services to help you in finding and retaining meaningful employment.

Together with Workforce Solutions Northeast Texas, Texas Workforce Solutions - Vocational Rehabilitation Services (TWS-VRS) provides Texans with disabilities an array of workforce and support services that help you prepare for, find, retain and advance in employment. 

The newly launched Start My VR is an online self-referral form that offers a convenient way for Texans with disabilities to take the first step toward employment by meeting with VR staff to learn about Vocational Rehabilitation Services and meet with a VR Counselor. Get started today by visiting Start My VR and taking three easy steps.
