Supported employment (SE) is a customer-driven approach that assesses individuals with the most-significant disabilities and assists eligible individuals in obtaining competitive, integrated employment.
The program is offered by Vocational Rehabilitation Service (VRS), a division of the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS), in collaboration with several partners throughout the state. SE uses Milestones to Employment (MTE) in connecting employers with valuable employees who care about their job.
MTE involves up to four milestone steps:
Milestone 1 – Situational assessment and/or discovery
Milestone 2 – Job search/job placement
Milestone 3 – Job coaching
Milestone 4 – Long-term follow-up

To apply for SE services, please contact your local VR office and schedule an appointment. A VR counselor can assist in determining if supported employment is appropriate for you.
For additional information about SE services in Alabama, contact Tina Dortch, Micah Williamson, or Jennifer Hicks.
