When visiting Military Veterans Resource Center for the first time, each veteran is paired with a Veterans Services Specialist who helps them create their career goals, identify the barriers that are getting in the way and develop a career plan to overcome those barriers.
We understand many factors can disrupt a strong and healthy home life, or prevent a veteran from obtaining or keeping gainful employment. Together, the Veterans Services Specialist and the veteran identify the obstacles and decide what resources to access that will best help the veteran, or the veteran’s family, succeed. Our staff can work with veterans to overcome the following barriers:
- Mental or Physical Health Concerns
- Housing Issues
- Legal Issues
- Employment Issues
- Lack of Training or Education
- Transportation Issues
- Financial Hardships
- Family Issues
- Emotional or Spiritual Issues
All veterans and service members who served our nation honorably are eligible for our services. On their first visit to a resource center, veterans are asked to provide proof of honorable military service. Please view our different locations to find a career specialist near you.

There are times, however, when the veteran may be expected to contribute their own money. This often occurs in situations where another organization requires a co-pay.
