The North Bay Veterans Resource Center (NBVRC) is our original location in Northern California established in 1980. Below is a brief description of our programs and services, and an exciting new project. Please call us for more information on program eligibility.
Winning the Employment Game
Where it all began! Tim Hodenfield worked for NBVRC for over 20 years, and is the creator and author of "Winning the Employment Game." This text and workshop is an effective tool for career decisions in today's competitive labor market. The internal struggles to the job seeker: rejection, uncertainty and frustration, as well as the skills and competencies necessary to achieve career employment are the focus of this workshop. As Tim puts it best: "It is easy to get a job; winning the game is finding the job you want."
Petaluma Vet House
The "Vet House" is the first transitional housing project for veterans in Sonoma County. The 8-bed home is a joint effort by the City of Petaluma, HUD, the Veterans' Administration and NBVRC. The veterans residing in the house work toward training, employment and permanent housing goals.
Employment Counseling & Training
We are proud of our long tradition of helping veterans obtain career training and self sustaining employment opportunities. In addition to career assessment, counseling, and support services, eligible veterans may receive training subsidies.
The 15-bed veterans rehabilitation program opened in February 2013. The project is working to expand the beds to 20 by summer 2013.
