Our Bob Hope Veterans Support Program provides one-on-one employment services, as well as referrals to other resources, to meet the unique needs of military personnel and veterans transitioning out of the military into a civilian job or starting their own small business. It was built off of the success of Easterseals' WorkFirst customized employment services model.
The objective is to help veterans and their family members successfully return back into communities and pursue healthy, productive lives. We also provide this service to spouses/registered domestic partners of veterans.*
The program was launched in 2014 with a generous seed grant from The Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation's Bob Hope Legacy division to begin serving veterans in San Diego County.
Hundreds of successful outcomes in the first two years lead to an expansion of the program to Orange County. The Bob Hope Legacy continues to support the program and its goals to support more veterans to gain meaningful employment by increasing coverage in both counties currently served and extending services to Los Angeles County.
This service is free to veterans. Veterans do not need to have a disability to use this service.
*Note: Spouses and registered domestic partners qualify only if their veteran has a disability and cannot work.
