THE VETS GROUP, a non-profit 501(c) 3, community-based organization, headquartered in Washington, D.C. We provide a holistic program for Veterans and their families to achieve Economic Empowerment through Education, Entrepreneurship, and Employment. Assistance with affordable housing, family strengthening, and health rehabilitation is also offered.
The VETS Group offers training in Federal Procurement, Small Business Development; education in Financial Literacy, Credit Repair and Identity Theft and is now in the process of implementing an initiative to identify more procurement opportunities for Veterans in the Airport industry. Partnerships are being formed with large corporate enterprises to offer Veterans employment opportunities, business education, mentoring, technical assistance, growth capital, and access to international markets.
These activities are directed primarily, but not exclusively, toward veterans of the U.S. military service, their families, members of the National Guard and Reserves, members of the active military pending retirement or discharge, and service connected disabled veterans. Such veterans include Black, minority, and women veterans; veterans of limited means, recently separated veterans and veterans with barriers to employment.
