Earlier this month, Job Point received the news of a lifetime.
After careful consideration, the Veterans United Foundation board voted to make a gift of $500,000 to Job Point.
During early efforts to purchase our headquarters, Veterans United Foundation graciously donated an initial $100,000. With this unbelievable gift of $500,000, we are that much closer to owning our building outright.
To say we are grateful for this partnership and this gift is an understatement. This gift and what it makes possible will allow us to devote more resources annually to training and educating those we serve. It will ultimately allow for more people in our community to become self-reliant, raising the standard of living for themselves and those who rely upon them,” Smith said.
Our headquarters at 400 Wilkes Boulevard has been the backdrop for so many transformations – from veterans working through their visible and hidden barriers to young adults who are trying so hard to find their way in this world – lives are being changed right here within these four walls.
For Job Point, serving people in our community is our utmost privilege. We have the great honor of helping people not only find employment, but meaning and purpose in their lives. Our services help change the lives of the individuals we support directly and have the potential of changing the trajectory of generations to come.
We are grateful to the employees at Veterans United Home Loans and the Veterans United Foundation for the incredible role they have chosen to play in changing lives through this investment in Job Point and our community,” Smith said.
We are proud of and thankful for our longstanding partnership with Veterans United Home Loans and the Veterans United Foundation that extends well beyond financial support. This partnership has had a tremendous impact on Job Point over the past ten years.
- Through board service, Veterans United employees have helped guide the growth of our organization where they have been instrumental in our continued success.
- During the start of the pandemic, through CoMoHelps, Veterans United played a huge role in equipping our team with the resources we needed to keep everyone safe.
- In a few weeks, our YouthBuild students will begin work on a ramp for someone in our community allowing them to remain safely in their own home. This project was referred to us through Veterans United, which has graciously donated the supplies while our students provide the labor.
We are constantly humbled by the Veteran United Foundation’s commitment to supporting this community – whether it’s enhancing the life of a single person with what seems like a small project or supporting a big campaign that will impact thousands of people for many years to come,” Steve Smith, President and CEO of Job Point, said.
This gift comes as part of a year-long celebration of ten years of impact by the Veterans United Foundation and the employees who contribute and serve their community.
