Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitation

Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) is a federal-state program that helps people who have physical or mental disabilities get or keep a job. VR is committed to helping people with disabilities find meaningful careers.

Our Mission is "to help people with disabilities find and maintain employment and enhance their independence." Our Vision is "to become the first place people with disabilities turn when seeking employment and a top resource for employers in need of qualified employees."

In addition to the general customer employment program, VR has additional specific programs designed to help eligible people with disabilities become employed.
