With a tear in his eye, a graduate of VEO’s “Veterans Work Bootcamp – Fueled by SHRM-Atlanta” said:
“I ended up homeless and living in the park after losing my job/income during the pandemic. The VEO gave me a safe place to stay & their Veterans Work Program and Bootcamp helped me get a job. Everyone should know about these bootcamps. Thank-you SHRM-Atlanta!”
Yes! Thank you to our SHRM-Atlanta volunteers for leading VEO’s monthly one hour Veterans Work Bootcamps. You are truly making a difference in the lives of our veterans in need.
