Building Bridges for Disability Advocacy

At the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC), we believe in the power of collaboration to advance the rights and well-being of individuals with disabilities. We are dedicated to forging strong partnerships with disability organizations to create meaningful impact and foster positive change in our communities.


We certify Certified Rehabilitation Counselors (CRCs). CRCs are highly trained professionals who empower individuals with disabilities to achieve independence, inclusion, and success. Their expertise in counseling, advocacy, and resource navigation makes them invaluable champions for disability rights, driving positive change and fostering equitable opportunities for all.


As an organization, we are committed to working with partner organizations to collaborate on creative and innovative solutions to providing services and advocacy to individuals with disabilities. If you’re working in the disability space, we would love to learn more about who you are and what you do.


Who Are Certified Rehabilitation Counselors?


Certified Rehabilitation Counselors (CRCs) are nationally accredited, graduate-level specialists who help individuals with all types of disabilities–physical, cognitive, mental–define their vocational potential, and achieve fulfilling, independent lives.

CRCs apply a holistic, evidence-based approach and the highest ethical standards to understand how their clients’ abilities impact their lives. CRCs systematically assess and evaluate individuals with disabilities to identify strengths and maximize abilities, working collaboratively with clients to cultivate successful, long-term careers, and participate fully in all aspects of their lives.

CRCs help individuals with disabilities achieve their personal and professional goals, build greater self-efficacy and autonomy, develop a sense of belonging within their communities, and live fully integrated lives.


Pillars of Collaboration

Shared Vision and Advocacy

Together, we can amplify our voices and advocate for policies and initiatives that promote inclusivity, accessibility, and equal opportunities for individuals with disabilities. By aligning our visions and leveraging our collective advocacy efforts, we can drive systemic change and create a more inclusive society. As the certification body for Certified Rehabilitation Counselors, our stakeholders are experts in disability and eager to make an impact in any way possible.

Knowledge Exchange and Capacity Building

Collaboration enables us to exchange expertise, resources, and best practices to enhance our collective capacity to serve individuals with disabilities. Through knowledge sharing, training programs, and professional development opportunities, we can strengthen the skills and competencies of rehabilitation counselors and disability advocates alike, ultimately improving outcomes and awareness of disability-related issues nationwide.

Community Engagement and Empowerment

By engaging directly with individuals with disabilities and their communities, CRCs can ensure that their efforts are informed by their lived experiences and needs. There is no one definition of “disabled.” Through community-based initiatives, outreach programs, and collaborative projects, we can empower individuals with disabilities to advocate for themselves, access vital services, and participate fully in all aspects of society.
