Combat Veterans to Careers (CVC) was founded in The Villages in May 2012 with the commitment to serve our nation’s combat veterans and their families. Since our inception, we’ve assisted more than 955 veteran families in the area of education, employment, housing and wellness. CVC has partnered with local residents, clubs, businesses, colleges and VA offices to bring combat veterans and their families “home” to a community that embraces them and provides education, understanding and meaningful employment to minimize hardships. In addition to counseling, housing, career and educational opportunities, we provide veterans with opportunities to deliver services beyond themselves. This is essential to successfully reconnecting with others in the community and is a large part of why many veterans were led to serve their country in the first place. Accessing care and benefits through the VA, utilizing earned education benefits, training for civilian careers, securing affordable housing and developing a quality resume package are just a few of the ways we continue to help our veterans transition back into civilian life.
Our Mission Is To Provide 360 Degrees Of Support And Opportunities And To Enhance The Quality Of Life For Our Combat Veterans And Their Families. We do this by focusing on the four main areas: Education, Employment, Housing & Wellness The need for this support grows each day as veterans continue to reach out to us. Together we can continue to ensure the men and women who have chosen valiantly defend the freedoms we enjoy will receive the support they need to achieve the civilian lifestyle they deserve.
