  • Hire A Veteran


  • Can you provide a job for a veteran? Can you provide a job for a veteran?

    Dutchess County is home to many veterans who have returned from bravely serving our country to a struggle finding housing and employment. The Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with Hudson River Housing's Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program to help create a database of employers willing to help out of work veterans. Participating employers will be connected with SSVF case managers for more information. 

    Funded primarily through the VA, the goal of the SSVF program is to promote housing and employment stability among low-income veteran families. Participants receive outreach and case management services, counseling, limited financial assistance and more. For complete information, see the official SSVF program brochure below:
