Through our expertise, we crafted the Veterans Employment Program.
Our strategy is straight forward. We assist and support Veterans with:
- Career Coaching: We support veterans in discovering what they inspire to be as they enter the civilian workforce. Did you hate what you did in the military? That’s ok! Our Employment Specialists review your past work experience and determine with realistic and attainable future goals. We encourage you to take ownership of your career path and will work with you to get the right role.
- Resume Building: We can help create, edit, and provide feedback for your resume. Translating your military work experience to a clear and concise resume that every hiring manager will understand.
- Employment Referrals: We have established relationships with regional small and midsize companies and skilled trade unions in the greater Philadelphia area by emphasizing the benefits of hiring military veterans. We also have friends at the regional Fortune 500 companies who are recruiting veterans as well. We are the go-to source for employers who are actively recruiting veterans.
We strive to be the definitive bridge in the Delaware Valley between veterans transitioning into civilian employment and prospective hiring managers, ensuring that military acquired skills are effectively converted into relevant roles within the organization.
As a non-profit organization, we have the advantage of working directly with veteran job seekers and assisting employers in locating and tapping into a qualified candidate pool. That means free for you and free for the employer!
Our motivation to achieve our goals is fueled only by the desire to support veterans transition to successful and meaningful careers. Since 1980 we have thrived as the main Veterans Service Organization in Philadelphia. Our passion, experience, and grit will you give you the confidence to trust our commitment to serving those who served.

Are You Homeless or at Risk of Becoming Homeless?
We help hundreds of Veteran families each year move into their own housing and access benefits, employment and much more.
The Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program provides comprehensive supportive services to low-income Veterans who are currently experiencing homelessness or are at-risk of losing their leased homes.
We provide eligible Veteran households with outreach, assessment, case management, advocacy and assistance in obtaining VA and other benefits, which may include housing counseling, legal support, credit repair, financial planning services, and time-limited, temporary financial assistance.
There are no costs to access our programs and we may be able to help you obtain the documents you need to apply. Contact us to apply for services and to learn more.
Our offices are open Monday – Friday, 8:30AM-4:30PM.

- Service Intensive Transitional Housing (SITH) – Focused on developing a housing plan and identifying possible income at admission. Additional goals are set for treatment through VA, VMC or other community provider resources. This model is for more of a general population that require less intense mental health and/or substance abuse treatment.
- Clinical Treatment – Focused on mental health and substance abuse treatment. VMC will provide unique therapy, in addition to VA providers. Mandatory groups and social work meetings are required weekly. Once treatment is stabilized, housing and income assistance is provided. The goal is to provide an environment where veterans with more complex issues are able to receive the services needed.
