One organization is implementing a unique way to provide jobs for veterans.

The Veterans Job Creation Program, which is looking to provide job opportunities for homeless veterans and veterans with disabilities, has launched in Arizona. Veterans in the program will work to deliver flyers and door hangers for numerous businesses.

The Madison Street Veterans Association, an organization of homeless and formerly homeless veterans, is providing a team of six to eight veterans who will deliver business flyers to homes in various areas throughout Maricopa County.

Veterans will be expected to work for six to eight hours per day, three to five days per week. Veterans who take part in the program will be paid per hour and will receive one meal each workday. They also will be offered new sneakers and health insurance benefits.

There will be opportunities available for telemarketing and other office jobs for veterans with disabilities who are unable to deliver business flyers. The Association also is looking for a business to sponsor or donate a van or truck in order to create a Veterans Moving Service, which will generate more work for veterans.

The Association is currently looking for a number of major companies – including those in pizza, real estate, solar, car dealer, and contractor – to commit to providing flyers for veterans to deliver. There also will be a flyer for a Homeless Veterans Clothing Drive.

Veterans also will have the chance to perform any miscellaneous work needed by homeowners, including trash removal, landscaping and handyman work. The program will receive no government funding and will be completely supported by corporate and individual donations.
