LOCAL COMMUNITY RESOURCES PROGRAM
The Local Community Resources Program coordinates referrals to three local service providers offering veterans training, financial assistance, and paid work experiences. These services are in-person and individualized. The programs include: The Department of Veterans Affairs Compensated Work Program, the state-federal Vocational Rehabilitation program, and the Department of Labor American Job Center.
Compensated Work Therapy provides paid work experiences and ongoing employment supports for veterans through partnerships with business, industry, and government agencies.
The State-Federal Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Program: VR counselors conduct in-person assessments, and provide counseling and placement services. VR counselors connect veterans with local employment programs that provide in-person employment counseling and ongoing support.
The American Job Center provides in-person career counseling, job training, workshops, interview practice, and accessibility and special accommodations for people with disabilities. As a bonus, veterans enrolled in this program gain access to CareerOneStop’s National Job Search tool.
