Combat Veterans to Careers helps meet the growing need of our Post 9/11 combat veterans who are struggling to transition from military life to successful and fulfilling civilian lives. Our 360° approach ensures our veterans receive the educational and physical and mental health benefits they’ve earned, along with assistance in affordable housing, transportation, community integration, legal and/or financial struggles, and career placement.

Here are 10 easy ways you can support our vets and their families during this time of transition through your involvement with CVC:

  1. Invite your friends and family to attend our annual and monthly events, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet some of our veterans, and all proceeds benefit our program. View upcoming events here.
  1. Eat at Texas Roadhouse in Lady Lake, FL the first Tuesday of every month. Texas Roadhouse, Lady Lake donates 10% of ALL food sales on the first Tuesday of the month to CVC. Learn more here.
  1. Offer complimentary business programs or services to support and train our veterans alongside us. Learn more about becoming a Business Partner here.
