Employment support center for persons with disabilities

Your gift will help break down barriers to employment for individuals with disabilities.

Your generosity transforms lives. Every year, Vocational Guidance Services provides comprehensive employment services at no cost to 4,000 youth, adults, and seniors. We could not provide these services without financial support from the community. Donations to VGS make it possible for individuals with barriers to employment to move forward on their pathway to self-sufficiency and brighter futures.
