The Salvation Army HAVEN Veteran Employment Services

The Salvation Army Haven Veterans Employment Services Program has been providing quality employment services exclusively to unemployed and underemployed Veterans since 2009. In a very competitive job market, we help veterans leverage their veteran status, passion and skills to stand out in front of HR recruiters and hiring managers. Our team works in partnership with our veteran clients and together, we have achieved employment success – nearly 80% of our clients have obtained jobs or better jobs.

Our clients are diverse, ranging from recently returning to those being out of the service for longer periods of time; veterans of all ranks and MOS; veterans with no civilian work experience to veterans with significant civilian work experience; veterans with no or some higher education to veterans with Bachelor's and Master's degrees.

We celebrate all women and men who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Since each veteran is unique, we take a customized approach to each veteran we assist by providing customized job preparation services matched to the veteran's needs, interests and qualifications. Services include:

  • Resume enhancement
  • Cover letter assistance
  • Employment application assistance
  • Interview skills
  • Mock interviews
  • Targeted job search
  • Connection with employer partners
  • Connection with community resources
  • Presenting veterans as pre-screened candidates to employers
  • Job related supportive service, i.e. interview attire, gas cards, work related clothes or tools
