Massachusetts helps people with disabilities find employment and live independently through a combination of programs and services. The Client Assistance Program (CAP) – a service offered though the Massachusetts Office on Disability (MOD) – assists those with disabilities access rehabilitation and independent living services in Massachusetts by providing information, referrals, and advocacy support.
