We want to share with you one of our amazing success stories!
Vin is an Honorable Army Veteran who served in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Vin was enrolled in (TCP) Texas Center Point's Homeless Veterans Program on few months ago. At the time of his screening, Vin reported he was living in Safe Haven - one of the transitional housing of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Vin and our staff developed his Individual Employment Plan and discussed his short-term and long-term career goals. Vin reported he was employed part-time and was seeking a full-time Human Resource position. Vin was provided resume writing skills, interviewing skills, job search assistance, and transportation assistance in the form of gas vouchers (funded by our GlobalGiving Donations).
Vin attended the monthly Power Partner Job Club of TCP which partners up with various employers and other veteran service organizations. Vin met with an employer at the Job Club and was interviewed on the spot. Two weeks later, Vin was offered a job for an Human Resources position. Subsequently Vin also acquired permanent housing. When Vin was successfully discharged from the Program, TCP staff suggested that Vin share his success story with the other veterans at the Texas Center Point Monthly Power Partner Job Club.
Vin attended the Job Club as the guest speaker to offer encouragement for his peers and also as an Human Resources representative. Vin continues to enjoy his full-time job and his own permanent housing.
