Military & Veterans Initiative
Easterseals New York currently provides three transitional programs to support our returning veterans as they reintegrate into civilian culture to gain the skills needed to obtain employment in the civilian workforce. Eligible participants go through an intake and assessment process, receive hard and soft skills training, supportive services and finally, employment placement and retention services.
Homeless Female Veterans/Veterans with Families Reintegration Program More women than ever return home from active duty to face the same struggles as their male counterparts finding employment. Female veterans often face a much more difficult reintegration process for several reasons: prevalence of military sexual trauma is high, some women do not identify themselves as veterans, and, when homeless, often fear they will lose their children. The first few months after their service has ended are crucial. The intake and evaluation process in this program directs support to the veterans as they begin the process of reintegration.
Red Mango Training Facility: Easterseals New York has received the donation of a Red Mango Smoothie Cafe franchise from Red Mango parent Brix Holdings. The franchise operates fully as a retail establishment but also provides training services to veterans interested in pursuing entrepreneurial opportunities in their return to civilian life. Located in North Babylon in Long Island, the facility will serve veterans in a region home to many returning veterans.
