Vocational Rehabilitation

The Tribal Vocational Rehabilitation (TVR) department in partnership with the State of Alaska (SOA), Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) jointly serves eligible applicants with disabilities in Southeast Alaska. Its mission is to assist individuals with disabilities to obtain and maintain employment.

Because TVR and DVR work together to provide joint services, we actively refer tribal citizens to the SOA/DVR offices located at:

Juneau Branch Office
10002 Glacier Highway, Suite 305
Juneau, Alaska 99801-8569
Every Thursday @ 1:30p.m.

The program empowers eligible applicants with disabilities to become self-sufficient and independent. TVR counselors provide the following services:

  • Guidance for clients needing help through the vocational rehabilitation process for training.

  • Referrals to appropriate employment agencies to ensure they find the best job that suits their skills, abilities, and strengths.

  • Counseling when client needs moral support, someone to talk with on basic needs, schooling, issues surrounding alcohol and drug issues; we do refer to professionals to handle their deeper needs as appropriate.
    • If needed, clients are referred to paid professionals within the community for up to 7 counseling sessions; the State of Alaska, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (ADVR) may also provide another 7 counseling sessions if it is recommended that the client needs these services. These counseling sessions are limited as the client must be ready to train and/or work.  (If the Tribal Citizen is a joint case with DVR)
    • Counseling with professionals may include Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, trauma, etc.
  • Working with probation officers on client's aftercare plan when released.
