City Employment, Education, Entrepreneurship, Events & Engagement (CE5)

DVS is dedicated to helping veterans gain access to educational programs, find fulfilling and sustainable jobs, and create their own business opportunities. DVS recognizes that it's not enough to ensure veterans have a place to live. They need the means to live. And just as important, they need to do work that fulfills them.

Veterans and often their families are eligible for special benefits specifically geared toward education, employment and entrepreneurship. Yet navigating these resources can be challenging. To address this, DVS provides vetted resources, one-on-one assistance, and information about various events assisting and honoring veterans.
