2015 FEATURED YEARLY PROGRESS HIGHLIGHTS


GETTING VETERANS BACK TO WORK

Workforce Development is the heartbeat of the continuum of services offered at VEO in support of our veterans. Our program provides veterans with the skills needed to gain employment, in conjunction with the resources necessary to become economically self-sufficient.

In 2015, we served over 200 veterans. Of those employed, there is an impressive retention rate approaching 80%. In 2016, VEO intends to engage 300 veterans in this successful program.

NEW PROGRAM FOR VETERAN FAMILIES

As of September 1st, VEO now has the capacity to house fourteen (14) veterans and their families in our NEW Veteran Family Supportive Housing Program. Veteran families now have access to the same Wrap Around Services as our current clients.

MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE EXPANSION

VEO is pleased to announce that Kaiser Permanente Of Georgia has committed $25,000 to expand the mental health services that VEO can provide onsite for our residents.
