Veteran Administration's Goals

In 2010 the Veterans Administration announced that they wanted to eliminate veteran homelessness by 2015, and that’s next year. The Department of Housing and Urban Development has recently said that it plans to eliminate chronic homelessness by 2016, and that’s in just two years. Both of these are worthy goals that will probably not be achieved, but that’s not the point. The point is that we all need goals that will stretch us and enable us to achieve results that we never thought that we could possibly do when we set them.

What do we do for Veterans?

The Veterans Services program provides supportive housing and intense case management services for veterans, referred by Veterans Affairs and other agencies. The level of support for these individuals includes a comprehensive program plan to support their efforts toward reintegration into society. Assistance may include: job training, job placement, applying for benefits, budgeting and other educational classes, counseling, social activities, transportation, etc. The program, typically, up to two years in length, provides support services on daily basis. The agency currently has five homes and three apartments dedicated to this unique program that house a maximum of twenty-nine Veterans.
