Kim Mitchell on getting veterans experiencing homelessness into jobs

Stakeholders share ideas with WorkingNation Overheard at the NASWA Veterans Conference

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs offers an array of resources to help veterans experiencing homelessness get back in the workforce. “We have an entire office that can assist our veterans experiencing homelessness in different ways, whether it’s through mental health treatment or substance abuse disorder, and even workforce development,” according to Kim Mitchell, senior advisor, VSO liaison, Office of the Secretary, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

WorkingNation sat down with Mitchell at the NASWA Veterans Conference in Washington, D.C.

Mitchell says, “Being able to live in an apartment, being able to hold a job, and be able to then get that paycheck and be able to pay bills is what we want them to do. We want them to be successful.”
