Department of Labor Grants JVS SoCal $498,000 to Help Unhoused Veterans Secure Sustainable Employment

In response to the Department of Labor’s announcement that JVS SoCal has received a three-year grant for $498,000 to operate the Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program — helping unhoused Veterans in the Los Angeles area reenter the workforce — Jeff Carr, CEO of JVS SoCal, made the following statement:

“This is great news for our Veterans that have faced difficulties reentering the labor market after they served their country so proudly. The Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program provides funding for three years to support unhoused veterans and those at risk of homelessness.

“Thanks to the Department of Labor, we will continue providing services to former servicemen and women who have found it difficult to adjust to civilian life after their service and are facing insurmountable odds in the housing market. It is our turn to serve them now.

“Through our wraparound Veterans Services, we proudly helped more than 2,300 Veterans in 2022. These services include crisis response; cash assistance, skills assessment, career coaching, training in high-growth industries, re-employment assistance, peer support, and Job placement assistance. It is an honor to be part of the HVRP network and continue the sacred work of supporting our Veterans throughout Southern California.”
