Of the total clients served by DVR in 2009, 72 percent were Trust beneficiaries.45

Figure 14 shows that the number of Trust beneficiaries served by DVR has increased and the number of non-beneficiaries served has decreased during recent years. Between 2000 and 2009, the number of Trust beneficiaries served by DVR who became employed grew approximately 18 percent.45
