Work Restoration

The Work Restoration program connects Veterans with local employers. The goal is for Veterans to secure gainful community employment, increased independence and enhanced quality of life.

The Homeless Veteran Supported Employment Program (HVSEP) provides vocational assistance, job development and placement, and ongoing supports to improve employment outcomes among homeless Veterans and Veterans at-risk of homelessness. There are several formerly homeless Veterans who have been trained as Vocational Rehabilitation Specialists who provide these services.

The Compensated Work Therapy (CWT) program provides realistic and meaningful vocational opportunities to Veterans; encouraging successful reintegration into the community at the Veterans' highest functional level. Staff match an individual Veteran's vocational strength and area of interest to work and employment opportunities with local businesses and industry.

Transitional Work Experience (TWE) offers challenging vocational therapeutic experiences for Veterans within local industry and in various departments within our medical center. Work experiences include landscaping, manufacturing, computer maintenance, food service, messenger service, and janitorial experiences. Patients work in these programs for up to 8 hours daily as designed. TWE is a key part of the Rapid Rehousing model.

The Supported Employment (SE) program consists of competitive employment with therapeutic supports integrated into treatment. The focus of Supported Employment is to assist Veterans with psychosis and other serious mental illness gain access to meaningful competitive employment.
