For Goodwill Industries of New Mexico, every day is an occasion to honor America’s veterans and offer assistance to those who have worn the uniform of our armed services. As a leading provider of job training programs, Goodwill® is dedicated to helping serve those who have served our nation.
In communities throughout New Mexico, Goodwill strives to provide programs and services to veterans, allowing them to re-enter civilian life as seamlessly as possible. One of those programs is Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF). The SSVF program assists very-low income veteran families stabilize their housing situation and much more.
