Operation PAVE: Paving Access for Veterans Employment
In 2007, Paralyzed Veterans of America launched its vocational rehabilitation and employment program, PAVE (Paving Access for Veterans Employment). With offices now co-located in VA medical centers in Tampa, Richmond, San Antonio, Chicago, Minneapolis and Long Beach, Operation PAVE serves veterans nationwide using a hybrid, integrated approach to assist veterans and transitioning service members who face significant barriers to employment, as well as their spouses and caregivers.
The PAVE program uses an evidence-based, holistic intervention model that incorporates both traditional and nontraditional vocational strategies and best practices to build the framework for a veteran-centric program that addresses their many challenges to employment.
Partners for Life
PAVE’s unique, veteran-based supported employment model means counselors work as partners for life to ensure veterans and their families not only find employment, but maintain it -- a measure that takes PAVE a step above and beyond traditional vocational rehabilitation models.
