America’s Service Locator connects people to local offices providing employment and training services. It provides maps and driving directions to the nearest One Stop Career Center. America’s Service Locator has information on more than 20,000 offices (i.e. Disabled Veterans Outreach Programs and Disabled Veterans Employment Representatives).

Other Vocational Rehabilitation Resources

Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies – State vocational rehabilitation agencies assist individuals with disabilities who are pursuing meaningful careers. VR assists those individuals to secure gainful employment commensurate with their abilities and capabilities through local job searches and awareness of self-employment and telecommuting opportunities. In addition to VR, some states have separate agencies serving individuals who are blind and visually impaired. The Job Accommodation Network lists agencies which can provide employment options for people with disabilities.
