Welcome to the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
"Empowering Employment and Independence"
Are you a person with a disability who wants to work, is looking for a job or needs help keeping your current job? If so, DVR is the right place for you!
We believe that anyone with a disability who wants to work, can work, regardless of the type or severity of their disability. We provide a wide variety of individualized services for people with disabilities. These services may allow you to reach your employment goals and live independently.
Our services are about helping Coloradans with disabilities. We help you find or keep a job, advance in your current job or find a new one.
Are you a youth thinking about what's next after high school? We can help you with job exploration counseling, work based learning experiences and more.
"I found a passion and longing for the world...I can make a difference and I can help people help themselves, which is even better than doing for them because they can do for themselves in the future, it's fantastic and I love it, and it's all thanks to the supports that I've gotten from DVR."
-Ty Smith (Watch Ty's Video)
"There is a lot of suffering in our world. Knowing that I am making a difference in the lives of others makes me very happy and fulfilled. I could not have gotten here without the help of DVR."
- Carole Billingam, Master Certified Coach
