The company received recognition from the former Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Vocational Rehabilitation program for efforts to promote the inclusion of individuals with disabilities in the workplace and communities.

DARS programs were transferred to TWC in September through legislative action.

Maximus obtained an award for its Irving, Texas-based project that works to support a government healthcare program.

The company worked with TWS-VRS to recruit and train disabled persons that could assist the program’s beneficiaries.
