Getting to work: Non profit helps displaced veterans find jobs

try to find work for them.



Shan Spencer moved to Helena three years ago, and each year since he’s talked to between 50 and 100 veterans who are homeless or without a permanent residence and tried to find work for them.

Spencer works for Volunteers of America, a national nonprofit that connects veterans with services ranging from treatment centers to per diem programs.

“Basically we’re out there being a veteran advocate and trying to get them back on their feet,” Spencer said.

Throughout Montana there are several VoA workers who help find housing for veterans, but Spencer is the only employee in the state who helps find them employment.

Veterans often seek him out or are connected with Spencer after talking to services like the Career Training Institute or homeless shelters around Helena. Spencer then meets with the veterans to determine their eligibility and what skills they have.
