Our Vocational Rehabilitation Service is provided to those individuals who have been found eligible for state Vocational Rehabilitation funding and services. To find the specific VR provider in your state, click on the appropriate link under “Our Locations” to the left. The services provided by state agencies include but are not limited to career counseling, job development, education, adaptive equipment, and job training. Work Opportunities Unlimited provides job placement and training services, including vocational evaluation for those individuals referred from these state agencies.
Unlike Supported Employment services, Vocational Rehabilitation is time-limited and is focused on job placement and training, not long-term support. However this does not mean that someone who will need long-term support will not be eligible for Vocational Rehabilitation funding and services. It means that in order to achieve long-term success on the job they will need Supported Employment funding once Vocational Rehabilitation has closed their case. For those individuals requiring Vocational Rehabilitation services Work Opportunities Unlimited provides the following Outcomes:
- Confirm Job Goal (within 2 weeks)
- Prepare Client for Job Search (within 60 days)
- Obtain a Job (within 90 days)
- Retain Employment for at least 90 days
- Achieve Plan Goals
