Preventing work disability and​ supporting the health and work ability of people who live or work in Vermont. 

Research shows that there is a brief window of opportunity to help an individual with a work-limiting injury or illness to remain in the workforce. Once that window closes, the likelihood of an individual remaining employed is low. When an illness or injury forces a worker to exit the labor force, the loss negatively affects the health and well-being of that worker, as well as their family, employer, and the larger community.

RETAIN is a federally funded program based on evidence that this loss is often preventable and – with timely, coordinated, and effective support – many workers could return to, or remain in their jobs.
