You are receiving this invitation because you may be working with a counselor from the division of vocational rehabilitation (DVR) to find a job, or you may be a provider of services who partners with DVR in assisting people to go to work.

The Washington state rehabilitation council is a group of volunteers who the governor has asked to make sure that DVR is providing good services that help people get and keep jobs they like.

We want to hear whether you think the services DVR provides are effective or not. Do you have ideas about how the system might work better? We are coming to Kitsap County to listen and learn. You don't have to attend if you don't want to. Your access to DVR services won't be affected by your attendance.

We welcome whatever you want to say. Here are some examples of questions we would like to learn more about:


If you call DVR does someone call you back within twenty-four hours?
What do you think every customer needs to know about working with DVR?
DVR is here to help its customers go to work. Do you think the services you are receiving will help you get and keep a job you like?
What have you liked about working with DVR and what have you not liked?

If you want to participate but can't attend in person we still want to hear from you. There are two ways to participate without actually coming to the meeting. You can e-mail comments to langjk@dshs.wa.gov or you can participate in the meeting by phone. To participate in the meeting by phone dial 1-866-699-3239, after dialing in enter this access code: 20024362.
