Independent Living Vocational Rehabilitation

The Independent Living Vocational Rehabilitation (IL/VR) program staff works closely with the Lowell and Lawrence area offices of the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) to assist people with disabilities who receive services from MRC in achieving their independent living goals. By providing consumers with peer counseling and skills training in areas of financial management, benefits counseling, applying for transportation services, and assistance with housing applications, consumers become more confident, self-sufficient, have more stability in their lives, and are better positioned to achieve their goals of employment and independence.
