The central office of the California Department of Rehabilitation is located in a newly renovated building at 721 Capitol Mall, which features improved accessibility, increased public meeting space, state-of-the-art technology and energy efficiency. The Department provides rehabilitation services to over 100,000 people with disabilities and employees about 2000 people. Approximately 400 people will be working at the central office. "The building has been modernized to be accessible for people with disabilities, while still retaining beautiful art deco architectural features," said Tony Sauer, Director of the California Department of Rehabilitation. "The location enables us to be closer to public transportation and makes it more convenient to conduct our important business with the public, our consumers, other state entities, the Governor's office and the Legislature."

Each of the six floors of the building is roughly a mirror image of the others, making orientation and navigation easier for everyone. It features automatic front and rear doors, with easy-to-reach push entrance plates, an alarm system with auditory and visual cues, such as alarm bells and flashing lights and Braille labeled signage by elevator and room doors.

The California Department of Rehabilitation works in partnership with consumers and other stakeholders to provide services and advocacy resulting in employment, independent living and equality for individuals with disabilities.
