If you are receiving this notice you may be familiar with DVR services. The Washington state rehabilitation council is a governor appointed council of volunteers working to improve the quality and availability of DVR services.

Our ability to improve services depends on you. We need your comments to understand what changes you'd like to have happen. We will be taking public comment from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. During that time we ask that you focus on issues within the system as a whole rather than issues within a particular case. If you have an individual case concern representatives of the client assistance program will attend and be available to follow up.

Recently we have noticed that some people who attend our meetings aren't ready to go to work because they need services from other systems or organizations first. Even though our job is to focus on employment, we want to make it easier for people to connect with other resources in their community. Between 5:30 and 6:30 we have invited a few local organizations to set up tables with information about their services. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO ATTEND. ATTENDANCE WILL NOT IMPACT YOUR ACCESS TO SERVICES. This forum will be recorded. To learn more about the council visit, www.wastrehabcouncil.org.
