Programs Overview

Miami TEE provides employment and vocational stability to Veterans and people with disabilities. Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP), Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and Ticket to Work programs support individuals as they strive to participate in the workplace and experience the pride of meaningful work.


  • Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program   

    In partnership with the Veterans Employment and Training Services, we support with training and employment. We offer job readiness, training, placement, and follow-up services to target local workforce demands. Veterans participate in job searches and receive supportive services to ease their return to employment. The program offers both classroom-based learning and on-the-job training. High-quality relationships in these communities allow us to give Veterans every opportunity to enter civilian employment.


  • Vocational Rehabilitation and Ticket to Work Program  

    We understand the challenges faced by individuals with physical and mental disabilities as they seek and secure employment. Vocational rehabilitation services and the Ticket to Work Program support individuals as they strive to participate in the workplace and experience the pride of meaningful work.


Qualifications for these Programs

  • HVRP: must be a homeless Veteran who was discharged under conditions other than dishonorable
  • Division of Vocational Rehabilitation: must be on disability and referred by Division of Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Ticket to Work: must receive social security benefits

Have you noticed some of your friends fasting during the day today? Well, today marks the start of Ramadan. In Islam, Ramadan is a holy month of fasting, introspection and prayer. Fasting is one of the five fundamental principles of Islam. Each day during Ramadan, followers of Islam, or Muslims, do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset. During this time Muslims also strive to avoid impure thoughts and bad behavior. Muslims break their daily fasts by sharing meals with family and friends. The end of Ramadan is celebrated with a three-day festival known as Id al-Fitr that is considered one of Islam’s major holidays.
As you can probably tell, Ramadan is somewhat similar to the Christian observance of the Lentant Season. Interesting, huh? 🙂
