The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) assists individuals with disabilities to obtain, retain or advance in employment. If you have a disability and are motivated to work, the resources available through DVR may help you achieve your employment goals.
To apply for DVR services, pick up an application in the Workforce Development Center Resource Room or the local DVR office, and bring the completed application to an Information Session (applications are also offered at the sessions in case you need to complete one at that time).
If you choose to pick up a DVR application at your local DVR office, the address is 1516 S. Green Bay Road, Suite 100, Racine, WI, 53406. DVR Information Sessions are held in the Public Meeting Room of the Workforce Development Center at 1717 Taylor Avenue, Racine, WI, 53403. Call DVR at 262-638-7200 to get the dates and times for these sessions.
The DVR Information Session will provide you with the information you need to know to decide if DVR is the right program for you. You will learn about the vocational rehabilitation process and core services, including:
- Eligibility determination
- Vocational counseling & guidance
- Employment planning
- Ongoing counseling and service coordination
If you require accommodations to participate in the meeting, please contact DVR in advance at 262-638-7200 so accommodations can be arranged.
If you can bring a copy of any information you have describing your disability (medical records, social security disability determination documents, etc), this will help move your application forward more quickly.
If you have additional questions, please call DVR at 262-638-7200.
