RD263 - Report to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees on Vocational Rehabilitation Services and Long-Term Employment Support Services for Individuals with Disabilities - October 1, 2012

Executive Summary:
This report is being submitted by the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS), formerly the Department of Rehabilitative Services. Data used to develop this report, particularly as it relates to the Long Term Employment Support Services program, was previewed by the Employment Services Organization Steering Committee at its July 10, 2012 meeting. Virginia is extremely fortunate to have a strong network of qualified providers who are approved vendors of employment services for people with disabilities. These organizations are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and, as such, maintain a level of standards and practices that assure effective service delivery for people with the most significant disabilities.
