Vocational Rehabilitation

Marianjoy’s vocational rehabilitation program provides services designed to help you achieve a productive role in the community and reach your independent living goals.

Our Services

Our vocational rehabilitation counselors will work with you to discuss and plan the services you need. This may include an assessment to help you decide on an employment goal by comparing your work abilities, interests, and skills to local opportunities. Other services may include job-placement assistance, which includes:

  • Determining a job-placement goal.
  • Learning job-search skills.
  • Identifying local job opportunities.

After you start working, your counselor will talk with you about your progress, satisfaction, and concerns. Your counselor may also talk with your employer or coworkers about accommodations that benefit you;, how you learn and perform best; and assistive technology that helps you perform certain tasks.

Marianjoy is a proud founder and member of the AbilityLinks Consortium which has established a website, www.AbilityLinks.org, to link people with disabilities and inclusive employers.
