There are programs to help you train for a job, find a job, and get personal support while on the job.
We can't find a job for you, but we will tell you how to connect to the services and programs that can help. We'll tell you more about these services and supports, but here's a quick overview.
These services are offered by the state. You have to apply and qualify. They may have a long wait list, depending on their funds.
Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC)
Department of Developmental Services (DDS)
Other ways to find support:
Vocational Programs — There are other employment support agencies besides MRC that help people with disabilities find jobs.
Support Organizations — They will talk to you personally, answer your questions, and help you find what you need, usually for free. If they can't help, they'll tell you who else to call.
