DVR assists persons with disabilities to succeed at work and to live independently.
We are DVR. The best candidates. The best support.
Colorado offers a strong, diverse workforce you may
not even know about. These men and women have a range of skills and
abilities, and they could really help your business grow - if you
only knew where to find them.
DVR is committed to helping our employer partners find
candidates who are skilled, loyal, and committed to your success.
Even after placement, employers and employees get ongoing support
from DVR's professional staff, including job training, guidance on
the ADA regulations, and information on disability and employment
guidelines. We can also help with financial incentives and
facilitation of tax credits.
Across Colorado, too many workers with proven skills are
currently left out of the workplace. As Colorado's leading placement
organization for people with disabilities, DVR is working to change
this by bridging talent and ability so companies and employees
