The WSRC is a group of fifteen governor-appointed volunteers. The council was created by Title I, Section 105 of the Rehabilitation Act and by Executive Order 04-04, for the purpose of increasing employment and economic advancement for eligible jobseekers with disabilities. We are systems advocates for the vocational rehabilitation service system and the customers it serves. Our mandates include gathering public input, which is why you are being invited to share your thoughts. You are not required to attend. This is not a regular DVR appointment with your counselor. We will take comment for ninety minutes. The last half hour will leave time for mingling and individual follow-up.

We are interested in how the VR system is working, so we hope you will help us understand:


What you understand about how participating in DVR services is related to going to work;

Whether your questions are answered by DVR staff in a timely manner;

Whether or not you feel that your process will lead to a job you want;

Whether you think you will have the wage and benefits that you need;

What you would want decision makers to consider for the next generation of people using VR services.


To request reasonable accommodation or a spoken language interpreter, please contact JoAnne Lang at langjk@dshs.wa.gov or 1-866-252-2939 (between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., Monday through Friday).

Although we would look forward to seeing you in person, it may be more convenient to submit written comments by e-mail. You are welcome to do that by contacting JoAnne at the e-mail listed above.

Will You be Riding the Bus to the Meeting?: Intercity Transit route 41 or 48 run frequently from the Olympia Transit Center. The routes service to the bus loop at the college.
