War Trauma and Employment: One Solution

Posted by on June 9, 2016 in Jobs For Veterans

I have been working with US veterans that have war trauma since 1970, during the Vietnam War. Plus, I struggle with PTSD myself. For these veterans leaving the military and re-entering civilian life is often difficult. They have a hard time keeping any job and supporting themselves and their families.

I created my One Day job board particularly for them. These are jobs posted by local community residents who need an extra hand with chores and repairs. here in San Diego, we have had well over 100,000 veterans take these jobs. They literally have been a life saver! Many guys can earn a fairly good living taking these jobs. Some earn between $3K and $5K a month after building a book of regular clients. Most will make $500 to $1000 extra a month by working on the weekends.  –The money helps. But so do the lasting friendships they develop along the way. Often, when these veterans are ready for a full-time job, these new friendships will help them secure one.

Our One Day job board is so popular here in San Diego that we were given the number 1 business award in the county for “creating economic development.” We were also voted the number News story in the county. The County supervisors gave us $100K to support the program!

Read some comments from the US military members that have taken these jobs and the civilians that hired them HERE.

I am eager to spread these One-day job boards across the country. I will build your company, school, organization or club a website with this powerful job board so that you can help your local US military and veterans too.

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a HirePatriots.com website for their location. Find more information about our military programs at PatrioticHearts.org. And please make a contribution of any kind. Thank you.
