In an encore episode, Steve D'Agostino, chief pilot of Best Rate of Climb, interviews Richard Turner, manager of employment and training, and John Valis, employment and training specialist at Veterans Inc. and Farah Diba Sahnoun, associate recruiter of Manpower’s Boston office. They talk about transitioning veterans out of homelessness.

Based in Worcester, Veterans Inc., is a national leader in ending homelessness among veterans. It has one of the highest rates in the nation – 85 percent – for transitioning veterans out of homelessness.

Since 1991, Veterans Inc., the largest provider of services to veterans and their families in New England, has helped more than 50,000 veterans and their families. Operations are expanding further into New England and beyond in the organization’s effort to achieve its goal of eradicating homelessness among veterans.

Veterans Inc.’s clinical-case management approach addresses the “total veteran”, incorporating job training and employment, health and wellness, and supportive services ranging from transportation to legal advice. This holistic methodology earned Veterans Inc. a “Best Practice” citation from the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans.

In 2009, Veternans Inc. received two national awards for outstanding performance, from Secretary Eric Shinseki of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and from the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans.
