OUR HISTORY

Since then the company has continuously increased its coverage area and now serves most Florida counties out of dozens of regional offices conveniently located within a couple of miles of the local Vocational Rehabilitation Offices. employU is consistently expanding programs to meet the need of customers referred to us by Vocational Rehabilitation, The Agency for Persons with Disabilities, and the American Dream Employment Network.
