…the Tennessee Vocational Rehabilitation program, a state department that works to keep people with disabilities in the workforce. The program has offices across the state to help people with disabilities.

“We want to provide a variety of services to any person with a disability that’s either obtain work for the first time, regain a position if they’ve lost or retain a position they already have and want to keep,” Linda Fisher said.

The department began helping Barber find solutions, and now the farmer, who used a flip phone until just last year, wears a high-tech device called an OrCam.
