What is Vocational Rehabilitation?

VR is a statewide resource for people with disabilities who are looking for employment. They assist individuals experiencing disabilities in getting and keeping a job. VR works in partnership with JDP and other agencies to develop employment opportunities for people with disabilities. JDP utilizes person centered planning to ensure each job seeker (you?) receive individualized support through the job search process and is the motivating force behind each step.

The mission of Vocational Rehabilitation is to assist Oregonians with disabilities to achieve and maintain employment and independence.
