Hire MI Vet is a community initiative that coordinates and hosts hiring events and other events to open the doors to meaningful employment.
The initiative is a strategic, yet very straightforward approach to helping the men and women who have served our country in the military find employment through a range of employment-related services. We host employment workshops, networking events, and an annual hiring event.
Michigan Ability Partners (MAP) has partnered with Wayne Metropolitan Action Agency to provide veterans in the Washtenaw County area with the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program (SSVF).
The SSVF program focuses on securing and maintaining housing for veterans who are currently homeless or would be homeless without this assistance. It provides temporary financial assistance and supportive services to help veterans gain housing stability. The goal is for veterans in the SSVF program to remain stably housed after this temporary assistance ends.
The VA is committed to ending homelessness among veterans.
Our focus is threefold:
Conducting coordinated outreach to proactively seek our veterans in need of assistance
Connecting homeless and at-risk veterans with housing solutions, healthcare, community employment services, and other required supports
Collaborating with federal, state, and local agencies; employers; housing providers; faith-based and community nonprofits; and others to expand employment and affordable housing options for veterans exiting homelessness
