How to Apply for Services

If you have a disability, you may also be able to get these types of services directly through the California Department of Rehabilitation (DOR), even if you don’t qualify for Ticket to Work. Another good place to get help as you start thinking about work is your local America’s Job Center of California (One-Stop).

OVR Transition Guide for Professionals


The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) is a state agency that helps individuals with disabilities prepare for, obtain and maintain employment. OVR is an eligibility based program. OVR is primarily comprised of the Bureau of Blindness & Visual Services (BBVS) and the Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (BVRS).

The Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) seeks to ensure that students and youth with disabilities have meaningful opportunities to receive the services needed to achieve quality competitive integrated employment outcomes.
