Community Rehabilitation Providers (CRPs)

Community Rehabilitation Providers are agencies or individuals approved to provide employment support to individuals with disabilities served by the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services and /or the DHHS Office of Adult Mental Health Services.

Coming together with Rehabilitation Providers Project

In partnership with our Community Rehabilitation Providers, BRS is currently undertaking a project to maximize the skills and expertise of all counseling staff, increasing the number of successful closures and decreasing the wait for services. The availability, structure and quality of employment services in communities throughout the state have a direct impact on what BRS is able to offer individuals with disabilities as they pursue their vocational goals. The purpose of this project is to investigate and implement changes in Community Rehabilitation Provider (CRP) services to improve employment outcomes of BRS clients and ensure that there is a maximum return on the resources invested for that purpose. Visit the CRP Project page for more information.
