Lighthouse is pleased to announce a new agreement with the PA Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR). Through this agreement, we are offering work assessments, job location and job support to all qualified adults age 21 or older. Qualification to provide this service enhances the ability of Lighthouse to support both students and adults as they explore vocational options.
Work assessments are required for anyone receiving a Medicaid waiver who is interested in Supported Employment. If they are found to be eligible for OVR services, then Lighthouse can provide job location and job support through OVR. If they are not eligible for OVR services, then Lighthouse can provide those same services through the participant’s Medicaid waiver.
Partnership with OVR also opens a path for those who pay privately. Cost is often a barrier to those who pay privately to access Supported Employment. Working with OVR is a means of accessing those services at no cost to the family or participant.
