Employment Services

Job-readiness programs help veterans find and maintain stable employment.

So often homelessness can be traced back to unemployment due to a lack of necessary job-readiness skills. In order to break the cycle of homelessness, we provide job-readiness and training services to help veterans reach self-sufficiency through long-term employment.

Volunteers of America is dedicated to getting all Americans back to work, especially the brave men and women who fought to protect our freedoms. Our employment services are designed to help veterans find work that meets their needs and gives them purpose. That is where we come in to help. Jobs in both the public and private sectors are available throughout Ohio and Indiana, and we work with employers looking for hard workers from any community. Through these growth opportunities, veterans can make meaningful contributions to their communities and combat homelessness.

Services Available

Volunteers of America offers several different programs to fulfill our mission statement. We offer a Veterans Resource Center, which has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. Veterans can gain skills in job searching, resume writing and job-readiness skill development to achieve long-term success in their careers. This service is available to veterans in Indianapolis, Columbus, and Cleveland.

There is also the SuperJobs Center in Cincinnati, which is also accredited by CARF. It provides similar skills as the Veterans Resource Center to help veterans who may otherwise have trouble landing long-term employment. The main emphasis of this program is to assist veterans with families and female veterans regain independence through fulfilling work. Whether they have been out of the service for over 20 years or are looking to transition into civilian life while still serving, we help veterans of all stripes.
