Vocational Rehabilitation: Definition
The Turtle Mountain Chippewa Vocational Rehabilitation Project was established on October 1, 1993 through a federal grant to meet the needs of local people who have a disability which interferes with their capacity to work. The Turtle Mountain Chippewa Vocational Rehabilitation Project is located on the south campus of the Turtle Mountain Community College which is located at 1027 Chief Little Shell Street NE in Belcourt, ND. The program is not intended to take the place of other vocational rehabilitation services provided by the State of North Dakota and to which Turtle Mountain Chippewa are entitled. There are six staff members within the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Project who are available to help any tribal members who have a disability and are seeking employment.
