WSOS Community Action Commission has announced the availablity of job training for veterans.

It's one of six action agencies in the state offering the Ohio Vocation, Education, Training and Services (Ohio VETS) program supported by Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Cleveland, and Rep. Steve Stivers, R-Ripley.

“Veterans who sacrificed to keep our homeland safe should never have to worry about being homeless,” Brown said in a statement . “That’s why community-based programs such as OACAA’s Ohio VETS program are so important. Rather than merely address the symptom, this initiative connects veterans with the skills needed to enter the workforce and other resources needed to live with dignity. This is about ensuring our veterans have the benefits that they have earned and deserve.”

The year-long pilot program is aimed at assisting veterans whose income is no more than 200 percent of the federal poverty guideline — $22,340 per year for a single person, $30,260 for two people, $38,180 for three people, or $46,100 for four people. WSOS can assist with determining your income eligibility.
