Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program:
The homeless women veteran and homeless female veteran with children program "where women veterans work to improve the lives of homeless women veterans".
HVRP is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor; HVRP's purpose is to provide employment related services to assist in the reintegration of homeless female veterans into meaningful employment within the labor force.
The HVRP team provides an array of services utilizing a case management approach that directly assiss homeless female veterans as well as provide critical linkages for a variety of supportive services available in their local communities. HVRP is “employment focused” and veterans receive the employment and training services they need in order to reenter the labor force. Job placements, vocational training, job development, career counseling, resume preparation, are among the services that are provided directly or through a referral process. Homeless female veterans with children are growing a population with special needs. Here at BVSJ we try to provide tools to help those women veterans and their families. Supportive services includes referrals for interview clothing, to temporary, transitional or permanent housing, medical or substance abuse treatment, assistance with transportation and issuing of food pantries.
HVRP Staff will assist by:
All women Veterans with young children are welcome to bring their children along for their initial assessments and follow up appointments --- children are made comfortable and at home in HVRP Children’s Den while the woman Veteran completes her assessment or interview with a HVRP 3staff.
Black Veterans for Social Justice Inc. Children’s Resiliency Program supports the overall well-being and healthy growth of veterans’ children. The program offers children ages 5 through 21 a safe space to develop and improve self-image, relationships with their families and the communities in which they live, and encourage lifelong learning, positive time management skills, appropriate decision making and behavior.
