Goodwill Hosts Training for Homeless Veteran Service Providers

Coconut Telegraph


In collaboration with Goodwill Manasota's Veterans Service Program, the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) held a special two-day training event featuring Bret Anderson of h2 Communication, LLC. Anderson presented his curriculum on employment placement and retention for hard-to-serve veterans. This training, which took place at Goodwill’s Corporate Campus in Bradenton, was offered at no cost through the U.S. Department of Labor's Veterans' Employment and Training Service (VETS) in order to help providers improve service delivery and better collaborate with community partners. This intensive, hands-on workshop was attended by representatives from several Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) grantees – including Goodwill Manasota – from throughout Florida as well as professionals from local partner organizations including Turning Points, Jewish Family & Children's Service, the Suncoast Partnership to End Homelessness, and Veterans Affairs. This class offered the opportunity for participants to learn about each other, discuss strategies for collaboration and, ultimately, improve services for veterans.
