Disability Employment and Transitions
Mission and Goals
Advancing the employment, independence, and transitions of Montanans with disabilities.
- Employment in a competitive integrated setting;
- Independence grounded in self-determination, informed choice, and consumer control; and
- Transitions from high school to post-secondary education and work that are collaborative and successful.
To further this mission, Disability Employment and Transitions offers a variety of services, ranging from employment planning to transportation coordination. Disability Employment and Transitions also works with a variety of other agencies to reduce barriers for people with disabilities so that all Montanans can be free to fulfill their potential and contribute to their communities.
Disability Employment and Transitions is one of the twelve divisions of the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services. Our division operates under the Economic Securities Branch of the Department alongside the divisions of Child and Family Services, Child Support Enforcement, and Human and Community Services.
Three bureaus make up Disability Employment and Transitions: Montana Vocational Rehabilitation and Blind-Low Vision Field Services, Program Support, and Disability Determination Services. Each of these includes multiple state government programs described in detail elsewhere on this website. Follow the links in the division navigation bar to learn more about these programs.
Disability Employment and Transitions is always interested in improving its programs. We collect public comments through our website. We then use those comments to help develop our state plan. For a response to an immediate issue, please visit the Contact Us page.
