Texas Workforce Solutions Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Services
In 2016, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) laid the groundwork for the transfer of vocational rehabilitation services from the former Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) to TWC on September 1, 2016, under the new program name Texas Workforce Solutions-Vocational Rehabilitation Services (TWS-VRS).
Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend welcomes a great team of dedicated TWS-VRS individuals who are committed to serving the people and employers of Texas. TWS–VRS helps eligible Texans with disabilities prepare for, obtain, retain or advance in competitive integrated employment, which is employment in jobs with work settings, wages, benefits and advancement opportunities equivalent to similar jobs held by people without disabilities.
Your local Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Teams are committed to helping you reach your Employment Goals and continue to serve you with your health and safety in mind! VR Counselors, VR Teachers, Rehabilitation Assistants, and Independent Living Workers are available by phone, email, or teleconference where possible.
Call (361) 878-3000 or (361) 289-8710 for services.
