- Do you have a problem due to recent flooding? We may be able to help or refer you to help. Contact us and let us know about the problem and how it relates to the flooding. Contact us.
- Vermont Legal Aid's Client Assistance Program (CAP) helps people with disabilities who are trying to access help from HireAbility Vermont to get work, or start their own businesses. Because of the flooding, people with disabilities who were working or running their own businesses lost jobs and businesses. If this happened to you, and you want to know whether HireAbility Vermont could help you, or what rights you have to services and financial assistance, contact us and ask to speak with CAP.

Help with communicating in court
Do you have a hearing or a court case? Do you have a disability that makes it hard to communicate? You can get free help from the Vermont Communication Support Project (VCSP). They help people with disabilities in court, administrative hearings and related meetings. Communication Specialists are not advocates and they do not give legal advice. Learn more:
