Facts You Should Know
A person with a disability as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has the right to access all services, programs, and activities provided at Workforce Centers.

Asking for Help
If you have a disability and you require a special service or accommodation, you must let us know. This is your choice and your right. Disclosing the nature of your disability can have tangible benefits, such as qualifying for training opportunities by eliminating the consideration of the income of other family members that could otherwise make you ineligible.

Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.

Local Resources
If you are seeking additional resources in our region, please contact the Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services. The Division for Rehabilitative Services and Division for Blind Services offices are located in Abilene and Brownwood.
