The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) is eagerly preparing to welcome vocational rehabilitation programs operated by the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) to the Workforce Solutions family this September.

The Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program helps people with a variety of disabilities prepare for, find, keep or advance in employment. Gaining skills needed for a career, learning how to prepare for a job interview or getting the accommodations needed to stay employed are just a few of the ways this program helps people with disabilities increase productivity and independence.

There are many stories that illustrate the success of VR program consumers. As you read their stories, you will note a common theme of consumers determined to achieve their dreams through the help of VR programs. See full list of consumer success stories.

Information related to the transition of DARS programs to TWC can be found on the TWC Transition webpage and the DARS Transition webpage.
