The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment’s Division of Voc Rehab (DVR) is hosting a series of public meetings in March and April to gather input on how to better serve Coloradans with disabilities. DVR serves communities across Colorado by connecting jobseekers with disabilities with meaningful employment and a path to personal independence. 

Two public meetings, including a meeting specifically on DVR’s Youth Transition Services, will be held in Grand Junction in March and April.
