To ensure our communities have a highly skilled and trained workforce that meets the needs of local employers, our workforce services assist all Texans, including individuals with disabilities, with career development and increased opportunities for education and training so that all job seekers may connect to or advance in employment.
Workforce Solutions North Texas partners with Texas Workforce Solutions-Vocational Rehabilitation Services (TWS-VRS) to ensure that individuals with disabilities in our community have access to the array of workforce services we offer.
Workforce Solutions staff may make referrals to TWS-VRS for job seekers with physical or mental disabilities to determine appropriate services and eligibility. Workforce Solutions staff may also receive referrals from TWS-VRS for VR customers who may be eligible to receive workforce services such as adult education and literacy services, childcare services, attend career workshops, training, and more. VR staff are often co-located in Workforce Solutions Offices and are available to provide information about how VR Services may help individuals with disabilities reach their employment goals.
Together, our partnership is a win-win for Texans with disabilities seeking employment and for employers seeking to expand diversity and inclusion efforts by making their workforces inclusive of people with disabilities.
