Vocational Rehabilitation Services

Texas Workforce Solutions-Vocational Rehabilitation Services supports people with disabilities to prepare for, obtain and advance in meaningful employment by providing of range of services based on an individual’s employment goals. Our Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) counselors work closely with job seekers to determine an employment goal, and then identify and arrange for the high-quality services that lead to successful employment.

Our VR teams are ready to serve you every day during regular business hours, and have innovated our services, which are available remotely via phone, teleconference, telemedicine or can arrange for socially-distanced in-person services. We continue to provide the same high-quality services, while ensuring a priority of safety for VR customers and staff.

Guided by the principle of informed choice, customer employment goals guide the services that are provided, consistent with the customers’ strengths, resources, interests, and capabilities.

VR Counselors work in tandem with VR Business Relations teams who outreach to employers seeking qualified job seekers with disabilities to help fill their open positions.

The VR Program is an integral part of the state’s comprehensive workforce development system and services are delivered in collaboration with Local Workforce Development Boards, ISDs, colleges, community rehabilitation providers and numerous other partners.
