To Learn More About Our Services

The first step in making a referral for our services is to call our office at (617) 357-813 7 and speak to our receptionist. The receptionist will conduct a brief telephone inquiry, take your name and provide you with the date and time of our next Welcome Session.

Welcome Sessions are held most every Wednesday at 10:00 AM. In a group setting, an overview of services is given and you will have an opportunity to ask questions about the Vocational Rehabilitation process. At the end of the group session each individual who is interested in applying for services may meet individually with a counselor to complete the referral process. 

After completing a referral, you will be put on our statewide 90 day waiting list before we can meet with you to conduct an intake interview and begin providing Vocational Rehabilitation services.

Any individual with a disability and a desire to work may apply for services. Our services are designed to assist individuals with disabilities to make informed choices about work. Our mission is to provide vocational counseling and other support services to adults with disabilities to assist in obtaining and/or retaining employment.
