NATIONAL VETERANS OUTREACH PROGRAM: GIVING TEXANS IN NEED A #HANDUP SINCE 1972
VETERANS: Here To Assist You with Housing & Employment
For more than 48 years, the National Veterans Outreach Program (NVOP) has maintained a steadfast commitment to serving our nation’s veterans. From advocating for veterans of the Vietnam era to being at the forefront of services for a new generation of service members transitioning to civilian life, the NVOP is united by our unbreakable commitment to give our heroes and their families the opportunities they deserve. NVOP has long been in the fight to end Veteran homelessness and that continues to be the focus of much of what we do.
CIVILIANS EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS: Here To Assist You With Employment
In recent years the NVOP has expanded its services to include employment services for civilians who are experiencing homelessness in a partnership with the Texas Workforce Commission. NVOP is extremely honored to serve civilians in need by providing a #HandUP. Program benefits may include: job search assistance, help completing job applications/resumes, funds for Driver License/Birth Certificate fees, access to computer lab, bus passes, purchase of work-related items (boots, uniforms, tools), as well as referrals, support, and guidance.
