    What is Home Base Ankeny?

    The Home Base Iowa initiative is a non-profit, private-public partnership that will connect servicemen and women to the many job opportunities available with Iowa businesses. Recently Ankeny, Iowa has been designated a Home Base Iowa community.  Home Base Ankeny not only will provide veterans with the resources they need to find employment, but also will welcome them into a vibrant and growing community as they transition into civilian life. Currently, Iowa’s unemployment rate is around four percent, but businesses need skilled workers. This program helps connect these businesses with qualified veterans looking for career opportunities. Countless resources help veterans and their families with education and in transitioning to a new community with focused support and individuals who want to help.
