EYES INC OF NJ, located in Essex County, leads a coalition of community-based organizations to address the chronic issue of homelessness among veterans and their families living in Essex County, New Jersey. The Maximizing Opportunities for Veterans to Employment and Success (MOVES) project is designed to reduce the number of homeless veterans (with or without families), and increase the number of s/heroes achieving stability through training, job placement, and stable housing.
Funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor-Veterans Employment and Training Service, under the Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP) initiative, MOVES is one of two funded programs in the State of New Jersey funded to provide these supportive services to homeless veterans; and the only one initially funded to empower female veterans, and address chronic homelessness among this group.
MOVES is structured to provide centralized access to a strong supportive network of comprehensive wrap-around services to encourage and enhance stability for no less than 100 veterans, to include emergency housing assistance, permanent housing through HUD-VASH, case management, behavioral healthcare (individual/group/families), domestic violence, financial literacy, healthcare, health and wellness activities; career placement, supported employment (Job Retention), transportation, legal services, access to childcare and development; linkage to VA Benefits, and more.
