Military & Veteran Services 

Supported in partnership with

The Greater Cincinnati metro area is home to 136,199 veterans. Of those, nearly 15 percent live in poverty and less than 50 percent are registered with the VA. Easterseals Serving Greater Cincinnati’s Military & Veteran Services program addresses the needs of veterans in the Greater Cincinnati region by providing emergency intervention, case management, and employment and education services for local veterans, ensuring self-sufficiency for veterans and their families. ESGC’s employment services include job readiness training, industry certifications, and job placement, as well as transitional employment opportunities for veterans exiting homelessness and for those with higher barriers to securing long-term employment. This BWF grant will reduce barriers to employment and improve self-sufficiency for 250 veterans by connecting them to community resources including housing, healthcare, transportation, food, and benefit registration. Of those, 50 veterans will secure employment, and 8 veterans exiting homelessness will receive certifications and transitional employment to prepare them for long-term, full-time employment.
