Employment Service & Special Programs (ESSP)

Welcome to the Division of Rehabilitative Services' Employment Service & Special Programs (ESSP) web site. The Office partners with community rehabilitation providers to provide employment and vocational services throughout the state. We provide long-term support fund management; standards oversight of Employment Service Organizations (ESOs); and coordination and support of special programs such as, Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

In addition to our own activities, we have links to important partners and service providers. The Employment Service Organizations Directory provides a search capability for ESOs across the State and a direct link to a number of ESOs that maintain websites.

We are glad you chose to visit us and we hope the information here will assist you.
