Vocational Rehabilitation/Level Up

This program assists youth and adults with disabilities to enter or re-enter the workplace through the use of situational assessments, job placement and retention services as well as on-site supports such as job coaching. Individuals in this program are typically referred from the Bureau of Rehabilitative Services (BRS), and usually only require short-term assistance with finding and keeping a job. It is through this program area that the state may also contract with us to provide workplace-based personal care assistants for employees with disabilities. Vocational Rehabilitation Services can take place statewide but are currently concentrated in the greater New Haven, greater Waterbury, and greater Bridgeport areas.

Eligibility: People must meet the eligibility requirements established by the funding/referral source when there is one in place. Basic criteria requires that the individual served has a disability and needs support in finding a job or retaining one once placed.
