Through the Habitat’s programs, veterans are provided housing solutions and employment opportunities.

Microsoft’s Elevate America Veterans program is a program that helps veterans improve their technology skills by providing them the trainings that they need in order for them to find a job easier. The program also helps veterans to successfully transition from military to civilian life.
Everybody knows that veterans are proven leaders, committed, disciplined, has a good work ethic and most especially can work under extreme pressure. Because of this, Prudential understands the true value and importance that each veteran brings to the workforce.

Through Walmart’s Welcome Home Commitment program, a veteran that was honorably discharged from service within the first year of active duty can have a job at any Walmart branch in the country. Walmart also believes that hiring a veteran in the company is a big plus because veterans are quick learners and they work well with others. The discipline, training and passion that they have acquired from their military trainings will also be a great asset to any company that hires them. This is why Walmart is among those at the forefront of the active recruitment of transitioning veterans to be part of their company.
