Customized training and support services are provided to assist the needs of individuals with disabilities who require individualized support and training to address and remove barriers to employment.
Support is provided through one-on-one, individualized instruction. We support people to learn the things they need to learn that remove specific barriers to community employment. We specialize in addressing and removing employment barriers.

PVSA will provide services to individuals with disabilities who are seeking support to reduce or remove specific barriers to employment. Participants are referred for a specific focus of training and activities provided through PVSA. Priorities are determined by the referring vocational rehabilitation counselor. A customized and realistic support plan is developed to assist people in achieving community employment. The service will develop individualized plans and will be goal/outcome driven.
The goal of PVSA is to provide customized training and support services that meet the needs of individuals with disabilities who require specific training to address and remove barriers to employment.
