Our offices at UH 401.01, 401.02, 401.03 and 401.04 are closed, but staff will be working remotely to continue to provide high quality services. WorkAbility IV participants can continue to meet with their counselors by email and through scheduled Zoom appointments.
We can be reached by phone at 909.537.7207 by leaving a message or by email at email@example.com. The WorkAbility IV office will be monitoring both voice messages and emails to respond as quickly as possible to any inquires or requests.
Students wanting to apply for WorkAbility IV services can email WorkAbility IV at firstname.lastname@example.org and request an application and supporting forms be emailed to them. Please complete the application and submit the form along with supporting documentation to email@example.com.
