The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation partners closely with
many other programs and organizations to serve DVR customers.
Helping People with Disabilities
With offices statewide, DVR has been a partner with Washington’s communities
for over 80 years. As a division of the Department of Social and Health
Services (DSHS), DVR is designed to help meet the employment needs of individuals
with disabilities. This page provides links to the many federal, state and community
programs that DVR partners with to assist job seekers with disabilities.
The services each DVR customer receives are based on the unique needs of the
individual and are designed to eliminate or reduce the barriers to employment
being created by the individual’s disability. It is important that an
individual be able to actively participate in the rehabilitation process and
the disability be as stable as possible.

A Team of Professionals
DVR counselors work closely with customers throughout the rehabilitation
process. We welcome the involvement of family, friends, advocates and other
social supports and programs that will contribute to a successful outcome.
Partnering improves communication and coordination of our unique services
for the individual. We appreciate your referrals and we encourage you to
contact the DVR office
nearest to you for a visit or to have us come and
give a presentation about DVR services.
