Those That


The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers a Vocational Rehabilitation Program to help veterans with service-connected disabilities achieve success in the workforce. This program provides a range of services, including career counseling, job training, and employment assistance. Veterans who are eligible for this program can receive financial assistance for tuition, books, and other supplies needed for their education or training. Through the VA Vocational Rehabilitation Program, veterans can gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their chosen career path and achieve their goals. The VA is committed to helping veterans thrive in their post-military lives, and the Vocational Rehabilitation Program is just one way it is fulfilling that mission.


Programs to Assist Veterans


Compensated Work Therapy (CWT): Provides work restoration services to Veterans in rehabilitation. CWT programs include:


Transitional Work (TW): An employment model that uses time limited, wage paying work assignments that combine real work skills development and supportive services to Veterans, so they can transition to, and are successful in retaining competitive employment.

Supported Employment (SE): A recovery-oriented model that assists Veterans with severe mental illness (Bipolar, Schizophrenia, Psychosis, Polytrauma and SCI) obtain and maintain competitive employment in the community within an integrated setting.

Community Based Employment Services (CBES): Provides vocational services to Veterans who have a history of sporadic employment, difficulty maintaining a job, difficulty initiating and following through on their job search, and are not able to obtain competitive work independently.












Vocational Assistance services consist of vocational assessment, vocational counseling, referrals and navigating access to community resources for job placement services provided by CWT staff. Veterans that seek help may be unemployed, currently working but desiring a career change, or recently disabled and requiring assistance to return to the work force.


No Veteran is billed for vocational rehabilitation services.
