Employment Assistance

Individuals with disabilities that impact their ability to work can receive services from the Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation, a state agency located within the N. H. Department of Education.

Vocational services are also available to those who are eligible for developmental disability or acquired brain injury services or mental health services through the N.H. Department of Health and Human Services.  Individuals with developmental disabilities or acquired brain injuries receive services through the Area Agency System.  Those with mental health disabilities receive services through regional Community Mental Health Centers.
