Easter Seals TriState launched Operation Vets THRIVE, our Veterans Services program, in the fall of 2013. The program’s Community OneSource phone line, 513-878-2200, helps over 1,200 Veterans a year with emergency services. Based on our extensive partnerships and collaborations, staff help Veterans access our region’s vast array of services, programs, and resources. Staff help Veterans identify the services they need and can help fill out eligibility paperwork, make appointments with services providers, and provide follow up assistance to ensure Veterans receive the benefits and services they need and deserve.
Operation Vets THRIVE also provides employment assistance services such as translating a military resume for civilian employers, interview preparation, and employer networking opportunities for Veterans seeking employment. Operation Vets THRIVE helps over 300 Veterans a year find employment, and works with over 50 Veterans a year to achieve their academic goals, up to and including Masters Degrees.
All proceeds from Operation Vets Thrive events benefit Easter Seals TriState and its programs empowering individuals with disabilities and disadvantages in our community.For more information about Operation Vets Thrive, contact us.
