I was doing some searching online today about vocational rehabilitation. I found that a local town has an office I can visit to join up. I am so excited!!!!!! I so want to go back to work, but I need help in doing it. Yes, they have rehabilitation classes and educational opportunities for those seeking to rejoin the ranks of the employed.
From their website...
Vocational Rehabilitation Service ( VRS ), the largest division with the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services, helps Alabamians with disabilities achieve independence through employment. VRS provides specialized employment- and education-related services and training to assist teens and adults with disabilities in becoming employed. In addition, VRS works with middle schools, high schools, junior colleges and universities statewide to assist students with disabilities in receiving appropriate educational opportunities.
Now, if I can only get up the courage to drive the thirty minutes to do this, and hopefully, they will be taking new applicants after the new year. I haven't been this excited in years! I am so ready to be making strides with my life and having the routine of classes and work rehabilitation will do me well. Finally, something to look forward to! I need a reason to get out of bed in the mornings!
