Education, Training and Employment (ETE)

ETE services are provided to eligible veterans. Funded by the Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program (HVRP), under the US Department of Labor, the purpose of ETE is to provide services to assist in reintegrating homeless veterans into meaningful employment within the labor force and to stimulate the development of effective service delivery systems that will address the complex problems facing homeless veterans. CVI delivers an array of services utilizing a case management approach that directly assists homeless veterans while providing critical linkages to a variety of supportive services. The program is “employment focused,” and veterans receive the employment and training services they need in order to re-enter the labor force. Individual assessment, job placement, computer training, job development, career counseling, job interview workshops, and resume preparation are among the services that are provided. Supportive services such as clothing, referral to medical and substance abuse treatment, and transportation assistance are also provided to meet the needs of the veteran. The emphasis on helping homeless veterans get and retain jobs is enhanced through coordination with various programs and organizations such as the Social Development Commission and the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee/Veterans Upward Bound.
