Boots To Shoes Foundation The Boots to Shoes mission is to augment veterans support services for 21st century Veterans' successful transition into civilian jobs. It serves as an example for going forward by giving back. Through a combination of one-on-one meetings and phone conversations, a mentor provides business knowledge as a veteran plans and conducts a job search. Boots to Shoes seeks interested volunteers from the business and professional community to be mentors for transitioning active duty and military veterans.

The BTS programs are now with Military & Veterans Services at Goodwill of the Olympics & Rainier Region.
