Vocational Rehabilitation

The Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) provides vocational rehabilitation services for individuals with disabilities to achieve their employment goals. They work with youth and adults who have various types of disabilities. MRC is just one of the state human service agencies that assist youth with disabilities. In general, MRC is the agency that can provide vocational and independent living supports to individuals with disabilities.
