Vocational Rehabilitation Services


Call 822-3300 for the Portland Office

Vocational Rehabilitation (V.R.) is a program to assist eligible individuals with disabilities to prepare for, obtain, and maintain employment.

To be eligible for services a person must have a physical or mental disability which results in and constitutes a substantial impediment to employment for the individual, and would require V.R. services to prepare for, secure, retain, and maintain employment.

How Do I Apply?

To apply for VR, you need to call one of our offices to request an application. This needs to be completed along with release of information forms which will allow the VR counselor to gather information on your disability. Applications can be returned to your local VR office.

The Maine Department of Labor provides Equal Opportunity in employment and programs. Auxiliary aids and services are available to individuals with disabilities upon request. Please give us 1 week prior notice to the date of the event you wish to participate in to ensure availability.
