The Vocational Rehabilitation Program (VR) is part of the State of Tennessee Department of Human Services, Division of Rehabilitation Services. The VR Program assists eligible individuals with disabilities to prepare for and secure competitive integrated employment through person-centered, outcome-driven, education, employment, and support services.
Job readiness services directly assist in preparing an individual to apply and interview for potential employment.
Successful employment occurs when the individual completes ninety (90) days of competitive integrated employment in a job that is consistent with the individual’s strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, abilities, capabilities, interests, informed choice and economic selfsufficiency.
Job coaching services may be provided as an on-the-job support service on an individualized basis and depending on the individual’s needs.
