My name is Connie Mack and I want to thank the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation for seeing me though college. I struggled for decades with disabilities I thought I was “just stick with.”
I was having a difficult time making it through college at age 59 when I discovered the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation.
With fear and trepidation, I approached the DVR office prepared to be humiliated at least a little, to answer a thousand questions, fill out millions of papers and jump though billions of miscellaneous hoops, but to my surprise, the application process was very simple.
I qualified for, and have received a wide range of services from DVR for almost four years now. I have been treated with kindness, respect and understanding from day one and I will graduate from NMHU this December with a master’s degree in Counseling and Guidance, thanks in large part to the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation.
