Advocacy made the difference

Home / News / Advocacy made the difference

Elena just graduated from high school and is looking for a job.  She reached out to DARS for employment assistance.  Her counselor said she should have received the tools she needed through the transition planning in high school.  Elena did attend the classes but didn’t feel prepared.  DARS closed her case anyway.  She called dLCV for advice.

Together, Elena and a dLCV advocate negotiated the services that Elena needed to succeed.  DARS reopened Elena’s cased and helped create a vocational plan for Elena to get her first job!

If you feel you need dLCV’s relentless, zealous, uncompromising advocacy so you can get Vocational Rehabilitation services from the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) or from the Department for the Blind and Vision Impaired (DBVI), please do not hesitate to give us a call!  We are here to help!
