Operation Outreach

Through Operation Outreach and in partnership with the Red Cross, volunteers in Austin have served over 500 returning veterans, 200 of whom are women. Over 230 veterans have been connected to employment services, over 200 veterans connected to health and mental health services, and over 160 veterans connected to housing services. The initiative also matches veterans with other critical resources like transportation assistance to work, utility payment supports, and vet-to-vet mentoring services. Additionally, the city’s Workforce Solutions Center has provided a private space for volunteers and veterans to meet and receive individual support.
