About

The City of Commerce Library Veterans Resource Center is located approximately 20 minutes east of downtown Los Angeles. The Veterans Benefits Coach improves the lives of veterans and their families by providing them the proper resources whether it be for medical benefits, housing, education or employment. The Benefits Coach is a good listener and an excellent problem solver. They help veterans find the right resources and follow-up with them to assure that their situation has been taken care of to their satisfaction. The Benefits Coach also works with local non-profit organizations who provide additional services and benefits outside of the government resources. They serve as an advocate and can attend various networking events to find as many legitimate resources that are available to veterans.

We are looking for someone who has a passion helping others, is creative and who is a self-motivator. We are always seeking fresh ideas on how we can help veterans even if it's just to lend an ear.

All selected volunteers are required to submit to an application process and fingerprinting.
