True Patriot Love approves additional support for Forces@WORK

Prospect is pleased to acknowledge additional support of $90,000 from True Patriot Love (TPL). The TPL Board of Directors approved the funding in recognition of the excellent work and results achieved by the Forces@WORK team.

The monies will allow Forces@WORK to deliver uninterrupted service to Veterans, transitioning members of the military, Reservists, and their families as Prospect seeks to secure additional funding from other sources. To date, Prospect’s Forces@WORK team has helped hundreds of program participants find and succeed in new jobs in the civilian workforce. The program has achieved a 96% satisfaction rating from those it has served. It is led by Maj. (Ret’d) David Blackburn.

The True Patriot Love Foundation is a national charity that honours the sacrifices of members of the Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans and their families in both times of peace and conflict.
