  2. Hello Muhsin:
    While your question is broad, I wanted to share with you infomation about Vocational Rehabilitation, the State’s agency for assisting persons with disabilities to prepare, obtain and maintain employment. In our office located at 548 Smith Level Rd, Carrboro, we have VR Counselors, Vocational Evaluators, a strong relationship with Caramore, Orange Enterprises and other supported employment agencies. I am the Business Relations Representative for VR, so once a consumer has received counseling, testing, an Individualized Plan of Employment specifying a job goal, then they refer the consumers to me and I provide employment marketing training and act as a advocate in the business community to help them obtain suitable employment. The key point to our service is that the person must desire to work, whether full time or part time. Please visit our website listed above or feel free to give our office a call at 919-969-7950 from 8-5 pm. We do have a Mental Health caseload and have been successful in assisting persons with mental health disabilities to gain employment leading them to living a more productive life.
