A new social enterprise focused on helping those experiencing homelessness obtain stable employment and permanent housing.
At Valeo Vocation,
our name defines our values
Valeo /'va.le.o/: Latin, meaning strong, well, healthy, having worth
Vocation: employment for which a person is suited and trained, and which is regarded as worthy and requiring dedication
We strive to see our clients, customers, and community be strong and healthy. We believe that every person has intrinsic value, and a special purpose for which they are uniquely suited. When a person is working in their purpose, they are inherently strong, and contributing not only to their individual wellbeing, but making their entire community a better place.
For Our Clients
We provide individuals in Tacoma and Pierce County who are experiencing homelessness with:
An opportunity to earn a wage, escaping unemployment and homelessness
Case management to navigate support systems and reduce barriers to employment
Supportive services to enhance success in the workplace
For Our Community
We reduce homelessness in our communities through an innovative social enterprise that sustainably provides 80% of gross revenue needed to operate.
WHAT WE DO
Staffing for Housing
Valeo Vocation only succeeds with the help of our partner organizations.
Through a strategic partnership between Salvation Army Tacoma and Valeo Vocation, there is a constant stream of new workers to help keep Salvation Army operations running smoothly, and Valeo clients are gaining valuable work experience.
“It gives them a sense of pride. I love having them here,” says Salvation Army Tacoma Social Services Director Heather Wiley.
