The National Employment Network Association (NENA) serves Employment Networks (ENs), American Job Centers (AJC), and State Vocational Rehabilitation (SVR) agencies operating the Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency program, which is based in the Social Security Administration.
Our Mission is to be a professional organization providing training, advocacy, technical assistance, networking and related activities to Employment Networks and their partners under the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program with a focus on increasing Employment Network program participation and employment outcomes.
The 15 member all volunteer board is made up of a diverse mix of individuals from many different states, including large and small successful Employment Networks (profit & nonprofit), plus Vocational Rehabilitation, and American Job Center representation.
In the Ticket Program, ENs, AJCs, and SVRs help Social Security beneficiaries with disabilities achieve employment and self-support.
The Ticket Program relies on a public-private partnership among Social Security, SVRs, AJCs, and ENs to serve disability beneficiaries. NENA works with all Ticket Program stakeholders to help build the Ticket Program’s public-private partnership.
To support all Ticket stakeholders, NENA provides some services free of charge. Those services have included Ticket news and EN best practices by email and this website. NENA is developing an extended suite of services for dues-paying members.
