Aaron Brooks, a 6 year Veteran of the United States Navy, came to VOC homeless and looking for help with finding a job. Thanks to an employer who has long been a champion of hiring our veterans, Aaron is looking forward to a new start in Rochester with his family and for himself.
Errol Johnson came to VOC's Richards House in 2011. Ready to overcome his addictions and depression, Errol then faced his greatest challenge yet- a stroke that left him without the ability to speak. Since then, Errol has worked hard on his recovery and become an inspiration to the many other veterans in our Residential program and beyond.

"The VCTC offers many different courses to help veterans and their families improve their lives," says Michael. "I am impressed with the number of courses and the diversity of courses offered not only at the VCTC but our partner agencies in the Rochester area and look forward to expanding our services for future success."
