Supported Employment Services

Real jobs, real wages, real experience for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities

The Supported Employment Services program at LFSVA links individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Roanoke and surrounding areas with competitive employment opportunities in the community.

For individuals

We work with individuals age 18 and older to help them fulfill their vocational potential by

  • Identifying vocational skills and interests
  • Helping develop resumes and completing job applications
  • Touring prospective jobs
  • Assisting with job training
  • Helping procure transportation
  • Coaching and support at the worksite
  • Developing worksite accommodations

Services are billable to DARS, Medicaid waiver or self-pay.

For employers

We also work closely with employers to provide support and necessary training of employees at no cost to the employer. These services include:

  • Support on-site for individuals, as needed
  • Monitoring of employee and employer satisfaction
  • Developing workplace accommodations

LFSVA is approved as a vendor by the Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS). Services are provided in Roanoke and surrounding areas through DARS and the Medicaid Waiver.
