The Vets Ready2WorkTM program honors our service disabled veterans by helping them to find and keep community jobs.
Many veterans with hidden service connected disabilities like traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) require significant support to find and sustain jobs in the community, especially when they are struggling to readjust to civilian life, find and retain housing and reconnect with their families. Linden’s Vets Ready2WorkTM program offers a compassionate response to the enormous unmet need for specialized employment services for this population at no cost to the veteran.
Dedicated Linden staff work individually with each veteran to identify areas of strength and career interests that will translate into sustainable, meaningful employment. Linden also engages employers in the community to develop exciting opportunities that target the veteran’s skills and talents. Additional services can include: resume development, vocational assessments, specialized accommodations supports, and job retention supports.
Eligible participants must have proof of their veterans status and have a documented disability. For more information, contact the Vets Ready2WorkTM program director at 703-521-4441 or VetsReady2Work@Linden.org.
