Overview

If you have a significant vision loss that makes it hard for you to get and keep a job, you may be eligible for a variety of counseling, training, job skills, and job placement services.

Services vary according to individual needs. SSB counselors work with you to determine which services you will need to reach your job goal. Together you then develop a plan to help you reach this goal. Counselors who know about vision loss and understand workplace demands will help you choose which options are the best for you.

For more information, call 651-539-2373.
