How do I receive employment services?

It is indeed challenging to find jobs of any kind in today’s job market.  Finding employment is difficult, but not impossible!  In the spirit of our mission, we continue to educate and empower our consumers to conduct job searches. What does that mean?  We can show you HOW and WHERE to find job vacancies but getting a job still begins with you!

If a consumer with hearing loss and communication issues needs services, then the consumer must contact their Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Counselor to get a referral and authorization of services. Additionally, the consumer may fill out the form below and email us

Once an authorization for services has been received from the Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor with the number of hours authorized per month, a Rehabilitation Support Specialist who meets the criteria by VR to teach/train will contact the customer to schedule sessions.  The first session will be intake and evaluation to find out what areas need work and outline a service plan with the consumer and the VR counselor.
