Veterans often describe their transition to civilian life as difficult, and consider "finding a job" as their greatest challenge. Due to the unique challenges they face, transitioning service members, veterans, and their spouses are confronted with obstacles impeding their employment prospects. Many of our veterans and their families cannot overcome these challenges without assistance. They are counting on us to help. They need employment and other vital services to rebuild their lives, provide for their families and live lives of dignity in the country whose freedom they helped secure.
Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s Veteran Integration Program launched in December 2012 to meet these needs. Since then, this Program has been providing holistic, comprehensive and coordinated job training and employment services tailored to the unique needs of veterans, military service members and their families. At Goodwill, veterans and their direct family members gain access to career guidance, retraining and job placement services. The program is working. Since its inception, over 1,000 participants were enrolled, and 832 of those were placed into civilian jobs.
