OHIO VOCATION, EDUCATION, TRAINING & SERVICES PROGRAM
Community Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area is one of six pilot Community Action Agencies in Ohio offering the Ohio Vocation, Education, Training & Services (Ohio V.E.T.S.) program to aid veterans at 200 percent of the federal poverty level and below. This is an income of $22,340 for a single person or $46,100 for a family of four.
As the name indicates, Ohio V.E.T.S. will assist veterans in obtaining education, training and meaningful employment at a living wage and provide them and their families with other supportive services to help them attain self-sufficiency.
Many veterans, especially those returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, often need assistance with childcare, mental health services, financial literacy, transportation and many other issues.
Veterans may need workforce preparation services and supportive services such as utility payment assistance and weatherization. They also need job training, placement and coaching. Financial assistance such as work clothing, bus tokens, gas cards, tools and uniforms may also be provided.
