New Program Run By Non-Profit In Ventura, Santa Barbara Counties Helps Unemployed Veterans Get Jobs

Posted on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 12:24am

It’s Veterans Day, the day when we take time to honor those who served our country in uniform.

A program in Ventura, and Santa Barbara Counties is helping some of the veterans in our region who’ve hit tough times.  The project is less than a year old, but it’s already helped place more than 100 unemployed veterans in the two counties in jobs.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco reports what makes it an even more remarkable effort is that it isn’t a government program, but is operated by a non-profit agency.
