A DORS community rehabilitation partner (sometimes called a CRP) is a non-government organization, usually a non-profit, that works with individuals with disabilities in their community to help them find and keep employment.
A CRP provides one or more of the following services to DORS consumers:
A DORS counselor will often refer a consumer to one or more of our community rehabilitation partners for these services as part of the consumer’s Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE).

DORS is particularly interested in enhancing employment services for individuals who are blind or vision-impaired, deaf, deaf-blind, and/or people with limited English proficiency. We are also interested in encouraging CRPs to expand to or become established in the less populated areas of Maryland.
For a list of the CRPs that DORS has approved, see the CRP Directory.
All other services and goods a DORS consumer may need to become successfully employed are provided by a network of private practitioners, organizations and companies. These range from psychologists, to AT specialists, to speech pathologists, to benefits counselors, to building contractors, to vehicle modifications specialists, to stores like Sears and Walmart.
If you or your company would like to provide goods and services to DORS see: Becoming a Vendor.
