The skills and knowledge acquired in the military rein among the most superior of personal qualities. However, some hiring managers and recruiters lack the understanding of how skills learned in the military could be utilized within their companies. This discrepancy is just one instance as to why employment is a struggle for those who have served our country. Unfortunately, Michigan has the second highest unemployment rate for veterans. Some incentives have been made available to employers to hire veterans, but yet unemployment is still increasing.

The Detroit Training Center is providing veterans with the skill set they need to become employable at a well-paying job. The Detroit Training Center and the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries are currently working together to train veterans who are homeless in trades such as; blight removal training, deconstruction training, heavy equipment training, facilities maintenance training, and a construction training programs. If you or someone you know is a veteran who is homeless and are interested in a skilled trades program please call the Detroit Rescue Mission at (313) 309-5711 and ask for Ms. Vanessa Ingram.
