Operation Welcome Home

Operation Welcome Home is a non-profit initiative to provide Veterans of the Armed Forces a physical venue for rehabilitation services and support, mentorship, counseling, transitional and employment services. This is a program that aims to alleviate common barriers to services and employment faced by Veterans whom have so selflessly served our Country. Operation Welcome Home provides a common meeting place at Mylan Park for Veterans to congregate, share what’s on their mind, form bonds and simply relax with other Veterans who understand their trials and triumphs. In turn, the program helps Veterans develop an individualized employment plan that will help in their transition to civilian life.

Though the mission of Operation Welcome Home has changed to a degree since its inception, the concept of meeting the employment needs of Veterans still remains first and foremost as we serve the entire Veteran community in our area.  While we have developed a very unique and impactful means of placing Veterans in meaningful employment, we still field general Veteran-related issues as they arise and continue to use a strong and diverse web of strategic partners to meet the needs of our prior and current servicemen and women.
