We don't waste your donation money on big TV ads. That is why we need your help spread the word about VOICE. When you give you can be assured that your donation is used to help Veterans not used to get more money. NO PAYROLL, even our instructors are all volunteers and must pay their own way so as not to take any money from the Veterans.  We are always looking for more volunteers.

We are a non-profit for Veterans and we can prove it.

What is the "VOICE" program?

Mountain Morning Ministries, a non-profit, faith-based organization, has partnered with Homeland America, LLC, to proudly present the VOICE program.  VOICE stands for “Veterans Opportunities in Career Employment”.  VOICE is a one-year, on-site, residency training program, offered at absolutely NO charge to our Veterans.  VOICE was developed to serve honorably-discharged Veterans who have returned home from active duty and assist them in transitioning from the military back to civilian life.  Part of that transition is to assist them in identifying a career path of their choosing that will help them find gainful employment to achieve their goals and dreams.  VOICE is conducted at an established “base camp” in the community of Board Camp, Arkansas, where program-participants will reside during their one year with VOICE.  Veterans who participate in the VOICE program will build positive relationships with professional people and each other, in a structured setting similar to the military experience they are used to.  VOICE offers training and on-the-job work-experience opportunities, in a variety of occupational fields, so Veterans are able to sample different fields to assist them in choosing their career path.  Our Veterans risked their lives to protect us so we can live in the land of the free. VOICE is our way of saying “Thank You” and giving back to the men and women who gave of themselves.


Programs

Career path advisors will meet with program participants to provide an overview of each hands-on career training program available, and will help them identify the career path that best meets their goals.  The following programs are just a sampling of those being offered through Mountain Morning Ministries' sponsorship and Homeland America's facilitation of the "VOICE" program.  All program-participating Veterans will also receive “Life Skills” training in areas such as first aid, firefighting and prevention, personal management skills, etc.

What is the cost of VOICE

To help get a Veteran off the street at a homeless shelter costs about $3,200 a month. To send a Veteran to trade school could cost over $4,500 a month. VOICE cost only $980 a month to house, feed and train a Veteran. Out of that $980 we give $200 a month to each Veteran to help them meet personal expenses. This is the least we can do for our Veterans who have already paid the price. 

Veterans Helping Veterans

“Value ourselves, value others” is a way to measure our ability to learn from one another. If we value who we are as individuals, we will value others and draw from their knowledge, skills and abilities, as well as share from our own. Veterans have a wealth of knowledge to share with each other and the world. Orville Murphy, a Vietnam-era Veteran, is Founder of the VOICE program, and VOICE is his way of valuing, reaching out and sharing with other Veterans. “Veterans helping Veterans builds self-esteem, self-worth and confidence to prepare for a better tomorrow.” In 2002, Orville was awarded a congressional honor for volunteerism in his community. He is known for his excellent fiscal responsibility and ethical business practices.

Jobs vs Careers

A job is a job is a job.  Jobs come and go.  A career is more than a job... it's an investment in often lengthy and complete training, and a person's self-worth and self-identity are tied to a career.  A job is what you do and a career is who you are. Straightforwardly – the VOICE program offers training and short-term work-experiences in jobs of choice to help Veterans identify, in a hands-on manner, a career path that will enhance their interest and purpose, as they transition back into civilian life.
