Our mission is to assist Contra Costa veterans in securing employment, by lobbying for legislative support, by vigorous outreach to veterans and veteran organizations, by partnering with employers, and by providing tangible transitional aid to veterans who have obtained employment.
The committee works with the California Employment Development Department (EDD) and veteran service organizations (VSO). For example, if a veteran secures an employment opportunity, but needs gas money or transit passes for commute to the job, the committee will assist. If a veteran secures employment but needs a set of tools, the committee will assist.
Donations of cash and in-kind contributions will be solicited from local corporations, community groups and individuals. VSOs and other community organizations will help identify veterans requiring assistance. The committee will participate in veterans job fairs and assistance events.
All committee members are unpaid volunteers. The committee will not engage any paid employees.
