VET TRANSFER: MAKING THEIR TRANSITION BETTER

Our veterans. They are our unsung heroes. They spent most of their lives protecting our country. They have sacrificed a lot – being away from their families, putting other people’s welfare above their own. And when they retire, it is time to repay what they have done for the nation.

What will we do after we retire? This is the question most veterans ask. They have been so used to working non-stop, not resting until they are assured that everyone is safe. Upon their retirement, some of them have no more families to go home to, some have fallen ill. It is only natural that they would be concerned about what the future holds for them. Faced with different options, there is something they all have in common. There  is that burning desire to still be productive citizens of our country. Some of them want to go back to the workforce, others want to start their own business, while others want to pursue their dreams before they entered the military. Here at Vet Transfer, we make sure we extend a helping hand to assist them in the fulfillment of their hearts’ desires – whether they want to work again or want to put up a business or want to study again, they have our full support as they open a new chapter in their life. We are committed to make their transition as smooth as possible.

WHAT WE DO

Vet Transfer works with businesses, financial institutions, academe, health professionals, non-government organizations, and government agencies that share the same interest in helping our veterans achieve optimum development at this stage in their life. We organize and mobilize the veterans into community organizations so that they can also be each other’s support system. We then work closely with them to determine what direction they want to pursue and if they have the necessary skills and capabilities in order to do well in their chosen path. We conduct training and seminars that would be beneficial to them – entrepreneurship, health promotion, hobbies and crafts, among others. We also ask them about the topics they want to be discussed and we invite resource persons so that they can be enlightened about the subject matter.

OUR ACHIEVEMENTS

Vet Transfer has played a crucial role in the implementation of ergonomic and behavioral-based interventions in workplaces where our veterans are employed. We want to be sure that they are working in safe and productive environment. We have also made it possible for many veterans to start their own businesses. They are happy being their own boss and still being able to earn money for a living. Our partner financial institutions have paved the way for them to have the capital and become entrepreneurs. We also have partner financial institutions who help our veterans manage their retirement benefits so that they will know how to invest their money wisely. Vet Transfer has also helped veterans in taking care of their health by encouraging them to go outside of their garage doors in Mesa and be involved in sports, fitness programs, and recreational activities.

Vet Transfer is the trusted partner of our veterans in ensuring a smooth transition as they change chapter in their lives.
