The Homeless Veteran Re-Integration Program (HVRP) is a Department of Labor Grant Program managed by a cooperative effort between the Community Action Coalition (CAC) and the Employment and Training Association to serve Dane County’s Homeless Veterans. The primary purpose of HVRP is to help homeless veterans secure and retain employment so they may re-enter mainstream society as productive citizens. To accomplish this goal, the program operates weekly program orientations, job clubs, soft-skills training workshops and provides access to occupational skills training opportunities focused on the needs of industry. In addition, the program works cooperatively with other Job Center and community based training programs helping veterans maximize the services available to them, reducing service duplication and improving cost effectiveness.
The employment focus of HVRP distinguishes it from most other programs for the homeless, which concentrate on more immediate needs such as emergency shelter, food and substance abuse treatment. While these are critical components of any homeless program, and grantees are required to demonstrate that their clients' needs in those areas are met, the objective of HVRP programs is to enable homeless veterans to secure and keep jobs that will allow them to re-enter mainstream society as productive citizens.
We are currently running Orientations on Mondays from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. In addition, we operate weekly Job Clubs and Job Seeking Skills Workshops in Room D2 at the Dane County Job Center, 1819 Aberg Avenue, Madison, WI 53704
