History of Service

Special Employment Services has provided needed employment related services to the disabled community as of August 2003 until the present. We have offices in Las Vegas, Nevada and Miami, Florida. (SpecialEmploymentServices.com).

We have provided job development and situational work assessment services for hundreds of disabled clients. In addition we have conducted Job Seeking Skills Classes (in both English and Spanish), provided Advocacy, follow along and Job Coaching services. We have compiled research and written special reports for the Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation. We are also a NISH Community Resource Provider and a DOL minimum wage certificate holder, a Medicaid contract holder and a member of the National Transitional Jobs Network. We have a contract with the State of Florida to provide supported employment services as well as job development Services. We have an extensive background working with the Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation, Nevada parole and probation, Nevada Mental health, the Veterans Administration and the Social Security Administration to name a few.

We were the recipient of Southern NV’s first “National Projects with Industry Grant” to provide Job Development Services to our local disabled community (2005 to 2008).

Through our “Projects with Industries” grant, we were able to form a relationship with the Nevada department of parole and probation; the grant allowed us to provide free job development services for their clients as they were released from incarceration.

We are the first Las Vegas licensed “temporary-to-permanent” employment service working exclusively with the disabled population; an effort on our part to create greater employment opportunities for our disabled consumers.  We have also been awarded job development and job development related contracts with both the state of Nevada and the state of Florida.

Our current national Director, Bob Saunders was formally the vice president of the Las Vegas Chapter of the National Rehabilitation Association.
