Operation Life Transformed
Operation Life Transformed offers scholarships for training in jobs that are traditionally considered more portable: in the information technology, medical support, and insurance fields. What makes this organization stand out is that in addition to milspouses and veterans, its programs are open to primary caregivers of war-wounded, whether they be parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts or uncles, or fiancées – the folks who aren’t normally eligible for these kind of benefits.
I know hearing about “portable” jobs can set off alarm bells for some, but for a caregiver who’s working around doctor appointments, rehab, and other medical needs of a loved one, a virtual, easily transportable job can be the difference between a paycheck and nothing. Operation Life Transformed says it’s the only nonprofit that supports the primary caregiver. Post training, it follows up with resume assistance and arranging orientation visits with potential employers.
