Mt. Carmel Veterans Center awarded 100K Grant to get veterans back to work

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) - The Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center has received a $100,000 grant from the Adolph Coors Foundation to support veteran and military family programs, including employment assistance, emergency support, case management and behavioral health.

“The Mt. Carmel team is proud to deliver wrap-around services for military veterans and their families, helping to realize the vision of the Coors Foundation,” said Robert McLaughlin, COO of Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center. “This grant will make the transition less stressful for military members and enable them to gain meaningful employment in the process.”

With this grant, the foundation aims to get veterans back to work and make a significant impact in the area. The Foundation's veteran grant-making is focused on Colorado in paid on-the-job training, vocational training, and job placement. Mt. Carmel's continuous goal is to place service members in long-term post-military careers.

Adolph Coors Foundation has supported Mt. Carmel’s employment and transition program before the non-profit officially opened its doors in 2016. The Foundation has partnered with Mt. Carmel for the last eight years.

  1. Some vets would even appreciate a short-term job to hold them over until something better came along.
