    Vocational Rehabilitation

    Through counseling, career guidance and vocational assessment, we help clients identify their abilities and develop skills so that they are empowered to choose a career to be successful and independent. This includes strengthening our partnerships in schools and dedicating additional resources and support to students and young adults with disabilities who need pre-employment services to become career ready.

    Employment enhances the quality of life for our clients and their families as they earn paychecks and increase their self-sufficiency, thereby decreasing the need for government assistance. This also stimulates the state’s economy through taxes and purchases, ultimately contributing to the state’s return on investment in VR services.

    We are fortunate in South Carolina to have a business environment that continues to grow and generate new job opportunities, creating a demand for an expanded talent pipeline. VR adds value by equipping clients to become qualified, job ready candidates to build a stronger and more diverse workforce. Through our job retention services we also help employers retain their most valuable asset, their employees, by assisting those who are experiencing physical or emotional concerns jeopardizing their employment (including alcohol and other substance abuse). There is no cost for this service, which allows our business partners to maintain the leverage needed to stay competitive.

    In collaboration with community partners and agencies, technical colleges and universities, and non-profit organizations, VR offers a customized approach to employing people with disabilities. Please join us in our mission to help South Carolinians attain independence and success through employment.
