Vocational Rehabilitation for Veterans
UMNPA Vocational Rehabilitation Services help Veterans reintegrate back into the workforce.
Veterans suffering from mental and physical disabilities sometimes have an employment handicap defined as an impairment of the veteran’s ability to prepare for, obtain or retain employment consistent with his or her abilities, aptitudes, and interests. UMNPA Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors work with Veterans to coordinate a wide range of rehabilitation services which include counseling, case management, training, rehabilitation, and employment services.
Vocational Rehabilitation Councilors will work with you to:
Comprehensive Intake Evaluation
Design a Program track leading to an employment or independent living goal
Identify viable employment
Narrow vocational options to identify an employment goal
Identify resources to achieve rehabilitation
Vocational Rehabilitation Plan includes the following Employment Paths:
Job Skills Training
Financial Assistance for Post-secondary training at a college, vocational, technical or business school
Reemployment (with a former employer)
Work readiness and assistance
We Empower our Vets to Re-Join the Workforce.
I didn’t like the sound of “rehabilitation” – I thought it was for the weak…I soon learned there was going to be transition time and that it was okay for the folks at UMNPA to help me out.Ray Peterson, Navy Veteran
