Vocational Rehabilitation of Disabled Public Assistance Clients. Final Report.
Hall, Vaughn L.
The project provided a program of intensive, comprehensive rehabilitation services to a selected group of disabled applicants and recipients of DPW benefits. Systems were developed to identify and refer potential clients for DVR services and to provide appropriate DVR services for rehabilitation into gainful employment. A 3 year project is reported. Twenty-nine percent (247) were rehabilitated at a cost per rehabilitated closure of $918.36, representing an overall savings of public welfare funds for these clients of $174,227 per annum. The development of DPW and DVR unit teams with clearly defined areas of responsibility was instrumental in the success of the project. (Author)
