Governmental Resources in Memorial
The American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program is an integral part of the Houston and Memorial communities. By helping veterans this organization seeks to bridge the gap between the support received by active duty servicemembers and the lack of care that is sometimes a part of that transition to civilian life.
Located off Houston’s West Loop, Memorial residents are just a few miles west of this organization’s headquarters. If you are a veteran who has been discharged within the past 48 months then you are eligible to receive care and services provided by this outreach program. Whether you are without a place to live upon moving to Houston or are in transitional housing, this is a group of volunteers who cares about veterans and the circumstances faced by vets on a day in and day out basis.
Baker Ripley wants to help people just like you find work that they can be proud of and that they can use to better themselves and their families. Career coaching in a new city with an active and hectic job market like Houston has is a great service in and of itself. However, financial aid assistance, vocational guidance and bilingual services are also provided by this organization.
Finally, the Bilingual Education Institute can provide you with the sort of one on one speech and literacy skills that are necessary for you to find work in many areas of our economy. Effective communication in oil and gas work is essential when it comes to landing a new job. Seven-week courses focused on English language proficiency are offered at their Richmond Ave. location. English is one of the world’s most difficult languages to learn and the Bilingual Education Institute seeks to bridge the gap between your present level of English proficiency and your goals in the area of learning and developing your skills in English.
