Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Achieving Employment Goals: Working with the Department of Human Services

Friday, November 8 - 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

If you have vision loss and employment is your goal, the Illinois Department of Human Services’ Division of Rehabilitation Services (IDHS/DRS) can be a helpful resource. This government agency can help with training, equipment and guidance to help you become a viable candidate in the job market. Maureen Reid, Job placement Counselor from the Chicago Lighthouse, is our guest presenter who shares information about working with this agency and the available employment services at the Lighthouse.

Maureen will discuss

  • benefits of opening a case,
  • procedures to open a case, and
  • procedures to follow for best results.
