[NEWS] Local Program Gives Formerly Homeless Vets a Fighting Chance at Civilian Worklife

 

From CBS Philly

Ten US military veterans, all formerly homeless, graduated today from a job training program during ceremonies at a center city Philadelphia hotel.

The five-year-old program helps these men and women rebuild their lives by getting the skills needed to handle a civilian workplace.

One graduate, Andre Hargrave, says he had a lot to learn after his time in the Army.

“First of all, how to calm down,” he admitted.  “How to be not so ready to just run or do something.  To have faith that the things we were working toward were gonna work out for us.”
