Life Skills Development for Homeless Veterans

Save to Favorites

JFCS of the Suncoast Inc

  • 21 people are interested

It takes more than just job skills and education to make a successful and permanent move beyond homelessness.

Skills like time management, problem solving, goal setting, teamwork, effective communications, organization, and conflict resolution are also necessary to achieve success in the job market.

Smart shopping, meal planning and cooking, budgeting, bill paying, and balancing a checkbook are also vital to succeed independently.

The Life Skills Development Program teaches these skills to the men and women participating in all of the transitional programs.

If you would like to teach a valuable life skill to some of our veterans and family participants, please contact Karen Wain at 941-366-2224 x143 or email:
