We work to safeguard the rights of people with disabilities in a range of work environments. These efforts include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Helping people get necessary services from the state vocational rehabilitation program
  • Assisting people with the Social Security Administration’s “Ticket to Work” program
  • Ensuring that employers do not discriminate because of a person’s disability
