Meet Dan Graham- his service as an Information Technology Specialist in Afghanistan gave him incredible experience and skills, but it wasn't enough to get him a job once he was home. Why did he turn to the VOC? Because he says "there's no shame in asking for help"- and that's what he got here until he found the job he was waiting for!
Meet Marianne Sernoffsky!
Supportive Services for Veterans Families (SSVF)
Marianne began working with the Veteran community 17 years ago; however, being the spouse of an Army Veteran, her connection to the Veteran community is far reaching beyond that.
Prior to joining VOC in June of 2014, Marianne worked with the Army Strong Community Center here in Rochester. In addition to her duties at ASCC and VOC, she continues to be involved with many committees throughout the community, to include: Help Base Greater Rochester, Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day Parade, VA Women's Healthcare Committee, and many others.
As Program Manager for our SSVF program, Marianne's responsibilities include: managing a staff of 4, meeting with our Veterans and their family members who are seeking financial assistance with housing and utilities, contracting with our community partners to ensure all of our Veterans' needs are met, conducting outreach to educate the community about VOC and our programs, and to reach Veterans who may be in need of our services.
