Get Help with the Homeless Veterans' Reintegration Program (HVRP)
Since 2012 Volunteers of America of the Carolinas has operated an Employment Program through funding from a U.S. Department of Labor grant. The Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP) purposes to place Veterans who are homeless into jobs. Eligible Veterans who have been out of work for a while or need to transition from military to civilian work may gain skills, certifications, tools, uniforms and/or transportation helps in order to reduce barriers to employment.
Through relationship-focused interventions HVRP staff assists the Veteran Participants to identify, secure and maintain gainful employment. The VOA Employment Specialists also make referrals and connections to help a Veteran secure housing and other vital services. HVRP hands-on services may include:
- Resume Writing, Cover Letter Writing, Mock Interviews, Job Application and Dress/Appearance Assistance
- Classroom Training
- Case Management
- Job Search Activities
- Job Preparation
- On-the-Job Training
- Job Placement
- Placement Follow-up
- Vocational Counseling
When a military veteran becomes employed, he or she may receive additional job assistance such as:
- monthly bus passes
- clothing needs that are specialized for work
- special tools and equipment necessary for the job
Volunteers of America of the Carolinas’ HVRP offers employment services to Wake, Johnston, Cumberland, Orange, Durham counties and other surrounding areas.
