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 (413) 499-2720 and mention that you would like to arrange a referral. A member of our support 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 8:45am and 5pm (Monday through Friday) and a member of our support staff will assist you.
