Employment


Preparing Veterans for life-sustaining employment is paramount to combating homelessness.  At Veterans Place, we focus on the economic mobility of Veterans by investing in workforce development & education and addressing basic needs.

We recognize that basic needs must be met in order for unemployed, under-employed, formerly incarcerated, homeless Veterans to advance along the economic continuum. In addition, access to education and job training are critical to lift people out of poverty, connecting them to tools that will help them build better lives.

Veterans will be provided vocational resources, such as job preparedness training, skills building, vocational certification and career counseling that will enable Veterans to connect to jobs and develop a stronger financial future.

Access to education and job training are critical to lift people out of poverty.
