NORMAN – One-stop information on everything from health care to employment services for people with disabilities will be the focus of a free resource fair on July 28 at the Norman Public Library Central.
The Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services will host the event from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Lowery Room at 225 North Webster in Norman.
DRS staff helps job seekers with disabilities through career preparation, training, job placement and other services that build skills and qualifications needed in the workforce. Agency staff helps clients deal with barriers to employment, such as inaccessible worksites, lack of transportation and the need for specialized equipment or training.
“Not only can DRS help people with disabilities find a job, we can frequently help them to maintain or advance at their current employment,” said Jan Hatch, DRS vocational rehabilitation program manager.
Representatives from community organizations, college services and state programs will be available at the resource fair to counsel attendees and answer questions.
“We are holding the event to provide information and materials about the wide range of agencies, organizations, and groups that are available to assist our community with various needs,” said Suzanne Roberts, DRS resource fair organizer and rehabilitation technician. “We are looking forward to a great turnout on July 28.”
