Kino Veterans' Workforce Center

Pima County One-Stop opened the Kino Veterans Workforce Center in 2012 to provide needed support services for veterans and to help them find jobs, get training and access benefits.

No one person or agency can do it all, so we formed veteran-centric partnerships using the Pima County One-Stop model, which allows partners to bring their expertise to assist veterans and their families while working with employers to hire veterans.
