Why Work Here?

Passionate About Working With Veterans? Making a Difference? We Offer an Excellent Work Environment, Pay & Benefits

The Veterans Life Center is a 100 bed residential program designed to help at-risk male and female 21st-century military veterans. By strengthening their mental fitness, physical health, improving life skills, and providing vocational training, we will guide these residents to career opportunities and community reintegration. Our programmatic goal is to avert the all-too-frequent crises such as chronic homelessness, incarceration, suicide, and premature death. Our comprehensive and systematic approach is designed to provide each of our residents the prospect of a constructive and personally rewarding role in civil society. The ultimate goal of the VLC is to help every resident achieve self-reliance. We have a rigorous assessment process, which will enable us to identify the specific needs of each veteran. Once accepted, each veteran will work with a VLC case manager to develop their own reintegration program and be guided into one of our five tracks covering time frames from 3 months to 2 years. Residents will live in double rooms in each of the four wings. The facility will include such things such as a computer lab, a fitness center, a chapel, and a meditation garden. There will also be a full commercial kitchen and a dining room, plus many common areas for various functions and office spaces for a staff of 30 people. We are committed to creating and maintaining an excellent work environment at the VLC and a place where you will be treated with dignity, respect and fairness. If you are interested in making a difference by working in an environment that provides veterans with a stable residential setting to pursue career and transition goals, while instilling supportive life skills, a sense of accountability, and the confidence for success - please apply now.
