Over 100 statewide Community Rehabilitation Programs (CRPs) provide services to DORS consumers. A CRP is defined as a private, non-profit program that provides rehabilitation service to individuals with disabilities. In exceptional circumstances to meet a specific need, DORS may consider approval of a community provider that is a for-profit organization.
In order to provide high quality services throughout the state, DORS frequently purchases services from these sites, including career assessment services, work adjustment training, job placement, job retention services and supported employment. For a list of the CRPs that DORS has approved, see the CRP Directory.
