OHIO VOCATION, EDUCATION, TRAINING & SERVICES PROGRAM
The Community Action Partnership/Ohio V.E.T.S. Program began July 1, 2012 and continued through December 31, 2013. On the final day, the staff invited its 70 active Veterans to come in for final Transportation Assistance and a pizza with soda snack as Ohio V.E.T.S closed its doors. Many of the Veterans were given $100 gas cards or $55 bus passes, and tokens as their final support from the program.
The program enrolled eligible veterans who were seeking Vocational, Educational, Training, Services support assistance as they worked toward their independence and self-sufficiency were enrolled into the program. Support and assistance was provided to 131 veterans.
The program was not just a hand out of free support to veterans but a vehicle that helped them to get back on their feet or maintain on track as they sought employment, education or training. Ohio V.E.T.S. provided intake and case management services and counseled, advised, encouraged, challenged, motivated, trained, joined councils on veteran affairs, processed resumes, paid rent and utilities and so much more to help veterans.
We are seeking the community’s support and input as we decide how we can best serve our veteran population in the future. Contact us with your thoughts and ideas.
