Veterans Enterprises of Texas / South TX Housing & CommUNITY Dev.
VETERANS ENTERPRISES OF TEXAS
For two decades South Texas Housing & Community Development dba Veterans Enterprises of Texas (VETS) has been creating employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, including many Veterans, who are especially proud to manufacture, kit, and distribute products used by this nation’s military.
VETS operations are designed to empower individuals with significant disabilities and help them maximize their income by creating opportunities for these men and women to use their unique talents to contribute to the nonprofit’s mission.
VETS employees training is continuous, insuring that every employee has many opportunities to develop technical and soft skills. From Lunch and Learn sessions with guest speakers to assistance with transportation to daily encouragement, VETS employees benefit from the supportive environment and personal attention given as was first envisioned by our visionary founder, Carlos Martinez.
VETS Kitting Operations provide jobs to individuals with disabilities, many of whom are Veterans. Current projects include commendation kits for the Army Reserve National Guard and a new contract with the Department of Defense for items used to maintain aircraft windows.
Community partners (agencies, organizations, case managers, schools, churches) are encouraged to learn more about work opportunities as we are eager to expand our pool of candidates and list of referring agencies.
The VETS Box Factory opened its doors in 1992 and has been providing manufacturing opportunties for Veterans ever since. NVOP’s CEO/President of 48 years, Carlos Martinez, established this sheletered work environment to create jobs for individuals with disabilities. Customers include the United States Postal Service and a vendor of well-known, professional quality golf clubs.
