Veterans Services

From Deployment to Employment

Goodwill Manasota’s Veterans Services Program focuses on providing services to accommodate returning veterans facing heightened risks of unemployment, personal problems and homelessness.  

We have developed alliances with community partners in order to help transition our veterans into employment aligned with their vocational goals through the Veterans Task Force, Goodwill Manasota’s Veterans Resource Guide, a 60-page booklet that contains detailed information on a variety of issues pertaining to the needs of Veterans and their families, and the SERV Initiative, an emergency fund for Veterans in need of immediate assistance.

Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP)

The Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program, or HVRP, was received in 2015 in response to the growing needs of the local population of homeless veterans. While the ultimate goal is to help veterans transition into employment, Goodwill realizes that many veterans need basic assistance before they are ready to get back to work.

The HVRP is funded by a grant from the Department of Labor, and efforts of the HVRP are solely focused on the needs of homeless veterans, or those who are at risk for homelessness in our community.

Special Emergency Resources for Veterans (SERV) Fund

Goodwill realizes that many veterans need immediate assistance and can’t wait until the next paycheck. The SERV Fund is 100% tax deductible and allows us to serve veterans in circumstances of immediate need.
