    What is VR?
     
    Vocational Rehabilitation (VR)

    The Vision for the Vocational Rehabilitation program is persons with disabilities becoming economically independent and decreasing or eliminating their need for ongoing government supports through integrated, meaningful, and sustained work.

    This is achieved through a rehabilitation process which engages applicants and clients fully in actively exploring their vocational interests, abilities, capabilities and service/process options and in making choices.

    The VR Program helps people with disabilities become or remain economically independent through work.
     
    What is DDD?

    The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD)

    Their services and supports help eligible individuals with developmental disabilities achieve self-sufficiency and independence. The Division likewise offers supports for family members and other caregivers. We believe that you can best be supported in integrated community settings and the majority of the Division’s programs and services are tailored to meet individual needs at home and other community settings
