In The Community


Veterans Services

Here at Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries, we have teamed up with the Detroit Training Center to offer job training to homeless veterans so that they can get on the road to financial growth and independence. The veterans are enrolled in our “Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program.”  Under this new collaboration, they can receive free training in a variety of construction-related careers, such as asbestos abatement contractor or supervisor, forklift operator, and aerial lift operator. Upon successful completion of the program, we will assist the veterans in finding jobs.

In addition OASIS offers “Transitional Housing for Veterans”: Help assist men, many of whom are struggling with addiction, debt, and difficulty finding employment. 25 men are homeless veterans of the armed forces and 25 are men with mental health or substance abuse disabilities, in addition to being homeless.
