To Make a Referral

Any individual with a disability can inquire about obtaining services. Friends, relatives, and health care providers can also refer an individual to MRC. Our services are designed to assist individuals with disabilities to make informed choices about work. We have two easy ways you can start this process.

  • Call and mention that you would like to arrange a referral. A member of our counseling staff will help you complete a short telephone inquiry and you will be assigned a counselor who will contact you to arrange an appointment.
  • Walk into our office between the hours 8:45 am and 5 pm (Monday through Friday) and ask to speak with the counselor of the day.
