Our own local celebrity: Malik Cheek

Individuals with a broad range of disabilities may access services through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors (VRCs) meet with individuals to determine eligibility for services and develop a plan with the client.

Individuals enrolled in the Individual Supported Employment (ISE) program receive assistance with job preparation, job development, job placement, retention, and follow along services.


As of Fall 2017, the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation instituted a new order of selection based on certain criteria. (Information on criteria for priority levels can be found here.)
Unfortunately, with the implementation of this change, we currently cannot offer services to anyone who has been put on a wait list. If you have questions on how this may affect you, you can call Ty at 509 443 3148 or your VRC

Supported employment services help people who are Medicaid eligible and have physical, behavioral, or long-term service needs that make it difficult for them to get and keep jobs. These ongoing services include job coaching and training, help with employer relations, and assistance with job placement.
