Metropolitan Center for Independent Living

IL/VR

IL/VR Collaboration

The IL/VR project is an interagency collaboration between MCIL and Minnesota Vocational Rehabilitation Services (VR). IL/VR Specialists provide core Independent Living services such as information and referral, individual advocacy, and independent living skills training to people enrolled in Vocational Rehabilitation Services.

The IL/VR Specialists are stationed at VR offices, typically housed within Minnesota Workforce Center (WFC) locations, and work closely with VR staff. While consumers work on job goals with their counselors, they simultaneously work with the IL specialists from MCIL on issues that are impacting their ability to work. These services are meant to address immediate and long-term needs such as assistance with benefits, housing, transportation, and soft skills necessary for successful employment.

This program is not a walk-in program, but rather by referral from Vocational Rehabilitation Services counselor only. If you are a person who is looking for work and also interested in getting your IL needs met within a team of VR workers and IL specialists, please consult your nearest Vocational Rehabilitation Services office to get started.
