OVR Supported Employment Services

For Fayette County Residents

TEC is a provider of Supported Employment Services for OVR (Office of Vocational Rehabilitation). TEC provides job development and job support to individuals referred by OVR for Supported Employment. Our goal is to assist individuals with disabilities to obtain competitive integrated employment.

OVR Counselors send a referral for Supported Employment Services to TEC. Once the referral is received, TEC will reach out to the client to schedule an intake appointment. Once the intake is completed, OVR will decide what the next steps are for the client.
