Welcome Home

The Union County Home Base Iowa Taskforce is seeking support from both community organizations and businesses to promote UC to returning and relocating veterans who are seeking employment and setting up residence in Union County.

Home Base Iowa (HBI) is a one-of-a-kind program connecting veterans and transitioning service members with HBI partners and resources. Currently, Iowa’s unemployment rate is at 2.4 percent and businesses are looking to hire skilled workers. This program helps connect Iowa businesses with qualified veterans looking for career opportunities. Countless resources are available to help veterans and their families with education and in transitioning to a new community with focused support and individuals who want to help. Home Base Iowa’s private-public partnership provides a high level of commitment for our veterans, transitioning service members and their families.

Vision: Iowa is the “State of Choice” for veterans and transitioning service members for employment, education and/or continued service; and service members are valued in communities which are welcoming, affordable, safe and family-friendly.

Mission: Provide veterans and transitioning service members and their families with opportunities and benefits for a successful transition in Iowa — a place to call home.
