Our Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP) helps homeless vets find meaningful employment so that they can be productive members of the community. HVRP is funded by the federal Department of Labor. The program assists homeless vets with resources, vocational training and job opportunities.
HVRP offers a broad range of training and employment services. They include:
We work with numerous partners in the community to deliver these services. These partners include businesses, training programs, educational institutions, human service organizations, veterans-serving agencies, government, and others. In addition to helping individuals gain employment, our HVRP program connects them to the educational, counseling and support services they may need.
To help homeless veterans take advantage and make the most of our program, our HVRP model includes outreach, pre-enrollment assessment, job training, job development, obtaining employer commitments to hire, and post-placement follow-up service.
To be eligible for HVRP services, an individual must be homeless and a veteran.
The average wage for those placed into jobs is higher than minimum wage.
Homeless veterans interested in assistance with housing and employment are encouraged to call or email our HVRP Specialists Claudia Edmonson 313-297-0076 or Cynthia Hunter 313-297-0089.
