Through Disability Law Colorado's Client Assistance Program (CAP) and Protection and Advocacy for Beneficiaries of Social Security (PABSS), we can help people who are challenged by receiving services from the Colorado Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.

Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
Federal law requires the Division of Rehabilitation (DVR) to provide services that are needed to help individuals with disabilities obtain vocational goals and become employed. See whether you qualify for services through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
Individuals who have disagreements with DVR about services are entitled to an appeal procedure to resolve those disagreements. Disability Law Colorado’s services range from providing information and technical assistance to directly representing individuals in dispute resolution procedures to resolve disagreements about how DVR services are provided.
Do you have a DVR dispute you would like us to help you address? Contact us.
The purpose of the Client Assistance Program (CAP) is to advise and inform applicants and individuals eligible for services and benefits available under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Rehabilitation Act), as amended by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), and title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), including students with disabilities under section 113 and individuals with disabilities employed at subminimum wage under section 511 of the Rehabilitation Act. In addition, applicants and eligible individuals may be provided advocacy and representation to ensure their rights in their relationship with projects, programs, and services to protect their rights provided under the Rehabilitation Act. In addition to providing assistance and advocacy under the Rehabilitation Act, a CAP agency may provide information on the assistance and benefits on title I of the ADA, especially those who have traditionally been unserved or underserved by the vocational rehabilitation program, with respect to services that are directly related to facilitating the employment for applicants or eligible individuals.
