This Best Practices Spotlight Guide is a supplement to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) 2011-2012 Best Practices Guide. It has been created and designed to assist Homeless Veterans Reintegration Programs (HVRPs), Incarcerated Veterans Transition Programs (IVTPs) and Homeless Female Veterans Programs (HFVPs) to better understand the networking and complex system building necessary for successful program and employment outcomes, as measured by the U.S. Department of Labor, Veterans Employment and Training Service (DOL-VETS). Each program highlighted in this Spotlight has leveraged partnerships and/or used innovative and creative practices that have helped to achieve significant success in helping more veterans experiencing homelessness and other significant barriers to employment obtain, retain and advance in their jobs and careers.
This Spotlight takes an in-depth view at four selected programs and discusses not only what each is doing that enables them to achieve high job placement and retention rates, but also identifies the main requirements for success and conditions necessary for replication. The programs featured were selected for inclusion in this Spotlight by DOL-VETS and the Burton Blatt Institute (operator of the National Veterans Technical Assistance Center/NVTAC), with input and assistance by NCHV.
