Introducing Veterans Employment & Transition Services (VETS)

Introducing Veterans Employment & Transition Services (VETS)

Since its inception in 2013, Easterseals Bob Hope Veterans Support Program has served more than 2,400 veterans and their families, with more than half of those attaining meaningful employment.

Beginning in January 2023, the Bob Hope Veterans Support Program will transition its name to Veterans Employment & Transition Services, or VETS. It has been a privilege and an honor to represent the legacy of Bob Hope and the financial commitment of the Bob and Dolores Hope Foundation for the past 10 years.

Veterans and our community partners can expect the same great service from the same great team of staff, and as always, our mission is to assist post-9/11 veterans to attain meaningful employment.

We look forward to hearing even more veterans say, “The Easterseals program is the reason why I’m working where I am now.”

VETS provides employment services for Southern California Veterans.

About Our Veterans Services

VETS will continue to provide 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.

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. This service will also continue to be provided to spouses/registered domestic partners of veterans.

Check out our stories of success featuring veterans who have found meaningful employment with the help of Easterseals.
