Supporting America’s Veterans

Successful Reintegration through Increased Access to Services

Reintergration from military service to civilan life can be challeging for veterans, and their families, when they return home and most go through a period of adjustment. Ulimately, most veterans find new and fulfilling roles and careers but for some, the transtion can be harder or take longer.

Easterseals believes veterans and military families can succeed where they live when local reintegration support services are available to connect veterans and their families to federally- funded veteran benefits and other community services.

The Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program at the U.S. Department of Labor is an example of how the federal government responds to the needs of America’s veterans by investing in community-based services and support programs.

Through this program, local organizations provide job training, counseling, and placement services to help homeless veterans reintegrate into society and the labor force. The program has been important in helping decrease veterans’ homelessness by 36 percent since 2010, and is a great example of effective public-private partnerships in action.
