“The purpose of the New Mexico Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (NMDVR) is to help people with disabilities achieve a suitable employment outcome. DVR is part of the State of New Mexico, Public Education Department , and its program is supported by state and federal funds. The New Mexico Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (NMDVR) is a Federal- and State-funded government program whose mission is to prepare and assist potential employees with disabilities to increase their economic independence through employment. In addition, we partner with companies and agencies seeking opportunities to enhance and diversify their workforce. Each case is assessed on an individual basis to ensure that the Participant's strengths, talents, circumstances and needs are taken into account. NMDVR does not use the "cookie cutter" approach for any Participant. The Participant will work closely with his/her counselor to determine what services are required and necessary to acquire or return to work.”
