A group of volunteers with the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is compiling a resource booklet on services available to military veterans in Burbank.
Judy Pike is chairwoman of the Volunteers for Veterans and their Families. The purpose of the group is to identify the services available to men and women of all ages who have returned to civilian life after serving their country.
“We want to find out what is missing and be able to provide that in our community,” Pike said.
Other plans include creation of a job bulletin where employers can post qualifications that match the skills veterans have learned during their military careers.
Future plans are to secure a storefront location where veterans and their families can come to find out about services, sponsor job fairs to help veterans assimilate back into the work force, and having a mixer to link veterans with volunteer organizations in the community.
