Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program

Employment and supportive service-based program for homeless Veterans


ECHO Housing & Community Development helps with finding employment and housing for veterans. The Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) reintegrates our community’s heroes into meaningful employment within the labor force and contributes to a broad-scale effort to address and overcome the complex challenges of homeless veterans. Since launching HVRP in 2012, ECHO Housing & Community Development has assisted over 700 homeless veterans in obtaining employment and permanent housing. Through a network of government and community partners, ECHO Housing & Community Development facilitates employment-related and supportive services for homeless veterans to maximize potential for successful, long-term employment and permanent self-sufficiency.

Services provided to veteran participants include:

  • Occupational, classroom, and on-the-job training
  • Vocational counseling
  • Job search/placement assistance
  • Career advancement assistance
  • Clothing, housing, and childcare assistance
  • Social service referrals
  • Counseling/Case-Management
  • Transportation assistance
  • Resume/Interview skill-building classes

HVRP focuses exclusively on ensuring the successful employment of veterans who are homeless. Participants can be housed at the James Bethel Gresham Memorial Home, a 6-bed transitional housing facility dedicated exclusively to supporting the HVRP program. On-site staff, including a program coordinator, are available to assist residents in navigating the road to stable housing and sustainable employment.
