By the Numbers 2008-2009:
How We’re Doing
SCVRD prides itself on being a good steward of its public funding. The department ranks at or near the top nationally in many vocational rehabilitation service categories. We’re proud that the department’s efficiency and effectiveness are a national model for VR agencies.
But our most rewarding benefits are realized when our clients, who have been dependent on tax-supported benefits, become taxpayers as they enter competitive employment.
|Total clients served||47,544*|

|Clients served in work training centers||6,379|
*Since rehabilitation is a continuous process that often takes a period of years, the department serves some of the same clients in successive years.
