Veterans Employment Services Program

The Salvation Army Haven Veterans Employment Services Program has been providing quality employment services exclusively to unemployed and underemployed Veterans since 2009. In a very competitive job market, we help veterans leverage their veterans status, passions and skills to stand out in front of HR recruiters and hiring managers. The Haven works in partnership with our veteran clients and together, we have achieved employment success - over 70% of our clients have obtained jobs or better jobs.

 Our clients are diverse, ranging from recently returning to those being out of the service for longer periods of time; veterans of all ranks and MOS; veterans with no civilian work experience to veterans with significant civilian work experience; veterans  with no or some higher education to veterans with Bachelor's and Master's degrees.
