Department of Labor Secretary Solis visits Veteran jobs programs, highlights HVRP program investments
July 27, 2012
This week, Department of Labor Secretary Hilda Solis spent time visiting innovative employment programs focused on serving our nation's Veterans experiencing homelessness. Funded in part by the Department of Labor's Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program, the three employment sites she visited in California and Minnesota work to ensure that Veterans in need receive the best training and support needed to succeed in civilian life while also working to connect Veterans with other supports to maintain stability. These sites include Swords to Plowshares in San Francisco, Goodwill of Silicon Valley in San Jose, and the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans. Secretary Solis was able to sit down with the leadership of these organizations as well as Veterans involved in the programs to get a first-hand look at the ways HVRP funds are changing lives through these organizations.
