This Veterans Day, Join Goodwill in Honoring and Supporting Our Military

At Ohio Valley Goodwill, we recognize the importance of honoring and supporting our nation’s veterans on Veterans Day and every day of the year. With more than 20 million veterans in the United States and many living right here in the Greater Cincinnati area, there’s no shortage of returning veterans who need support as they transition back to civilian life.

Many veterans experience complex challenges and emotional struggles that affect their ability to find jobs and successfully reintegrate back into their communities after returning from service. Along with physical disabilities and psychological distress such as post-traumatic stress disorder, millions of returning veterans also face the difficulties of homelessness and financial instability.

How Ohio Valley Goodwill helps veterans

Veterans Day gives us the opportunity to reflect on the many sacrifices made by members of our nation’s armed services, but it’s also a time to consider how we can give back and support returning veterans. At Ohio Valley Goodwill, we’re dedicated to helping veterans in our community every single day.

Ohio Valley Goodwill works with veterans to help them build the skills they need to rejoin the workforce and ensure long-term financial stability for themselves and their families. We’re proud to participate in the Cincinnati’s Homeless Veterans Reintegration Projects (HVRP), which provide veterans with skills training, career planning, and job placement support, along with assistance in finding safe and affordable housing. Residential programs, counseling, food, clothing,  and monetary assistance are also available for those who qualify. Funders for Homeless Veterans programs include the Department of Labor and the Veterans Administration.
