Programs Overview

Miami TEE provides employment and vocational stability to Veterans and people with disabilities. Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP), Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and Ticket to Work programs support individuals as they strive to participate in the workplace and experience the pride of meaningful work.

  • Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program

    In partnership with the Veterans Employment and Training Services, we support with training and employment. We offer job readiness, training, placement, and follow-up services to target local workforce demands. Veterans participate in job searches and receive supportive services to ease their return to employment. The program offers both classroom-based learning and on-the-job training. High-quality relationships in these communities allow us to give Veterans every opportunity to enter civilian employment.
