Washington State Rehabilitation Council

We partner with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) to ensure customers are on the road to employment.

WSRC works in partnership with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR).

We are committed to increasing employment, enhancing independence, and improving the quality of life for every person with a disability in Washington State.

People with disabilities have the freedom to choose the type of vocational rehabilitation services they receive. The WSRC empowers and endorses that freedom.

We create opportunities for people with disabilities to shape the services that support them in going to work.
