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

Ohioans with physical and intellectual disabilities are the most likely to lose employment, experience acute isolation, and suffer health complications if they contract COVID-19. A brighter future is possible. Together, we can help Ohioans with disabilities through job training,  job placement and supportive services that lead to  economic self-sufficiency.

Your one-time or recurring gift will have a direct impact on our ability to provide work opportunities and essential skills-training services for the 4,000 individuals VGS serves each year. Donate Now!

If you prefer to provide your credit card information over the phone, you may call our Development Office at (216) 881-6022.

If you prefer to give by check, make your check payable to Vocational Guidance Services and send your donation to: Attn: Development Director, 2239 East 55th Street, Cleveland, Ohio 44103.
