The American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program, a stable non-profit organization founded in 1972, is seeking applicants interested in serving in the employment needs of the returning Gulf War Veterans. Case Managers are responsible for receiving eligible veterans (clients), assessing both short-term goals, stabilization needs, and longer-term goals essential to achieving the desired outcomes, i.e. job placement, housing, support services, or a combination of services leading to stability and gained prosperity. Case Managers will have specific and measurable goals to meet in serving these veterans including the number of placements per month, support services, training requirements for the client and job preparation assistance.
The American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program, Inc. (NVOP) was founded and developed as a separate corporation in 1972 by the American GI Forum of the U.S., the nation’s largest Hispanic veterans’ organization chartered by the U.S. Congress. The objective was to create a new entity that would provide “hands on” services to veterans at the community level.
The NVOP is a duly chartered non-profit corporation qualified by the Internal Revenue Service as a charitable organization under section 501(c)3 of the IRS code. The NVOP, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, is recognized nationally as a premier community-based service provider specializing in services for veterans with special needs.
The NVOP is an organization with diversified service components administered by the prime organization (the NVOP) and six sub-corporations that operate services that include employment and training for veterans, affordable housing for the elderly, homeless veterans services, economic development projects that include the Veterans Enterprises of Texas (VETS) box manufacturing company, and the American GI Forum Weatherization company.
As a charitable organization the NVOP and all sub-corporations are non-profit entities overseen by a Board of Directors composed of community volunteers and elected officers of the American GI Forum membership organization.
In the past 35 years the American GI Forum has established a glittering reputation of administrative professionalism and accountability, and a sterling reputation for innovation in developing services meeting the contemporary needs of the veterans of today. In 35 years the NVOP has never been cited for any disallowed expenses on its annual independent audits, and it has received such accolades as the Regional Award for Cost Effectiveness from the U.S. Department of Labor, selected as a national Best Practice model by the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, and awarded the U.S. Department of HUD Blue Ribbon award for innovation in economic development when it created the Veterans Enterprises of Texas (VETS) box manufacturing company that created jobs for disabled individuals.
