VR prepares and assists eligible South Carolinians with disabilities to achieve and maintain competitive employment. Our Quality One (Q1) initiative focuses on meeting the specific needs of our consumers and business partners. Our goal is to ensure that quality happens one person at a time. Through counseling, career guidance and vocational assessment, we help consumers identify their abilities and develop skills so that they are empowered to choose a career to be successful and independent. This includes strengthening our partnerships in schools and dedicating additional resources and support to students and young adults with disabilities who need pre-employment services to become career ready. Employment enhances the quality of life for our consumers and their families as they earn paychecks and increase their self-sufficiency, thereby decreasing the need for government assistance. This also stimulates the state's economy through taxes and purchases, ultimately contributing to the state's return on investment in VR services.
