3 units serving primarily Veterans who are at risk of becoming homeless.

Providing housing shelter for veterans who are at risk of becoming homeless is an important step in addressing the issue of veteran homelessness. 

  1. Emergency Shelters: Emergency shelters offer short-term accommodations for homeless veterans, providing a safe place to sleep, meals, and basic necessities. Some shelters specifically cater to veterans, while others may have designated spaces or programs for veterans.

  2. Transitional Housing: Transitional housing programs provide temporary housing and supportive services to veterans as they work towards securing permanent housing. These programs typically offer a longer-term stay than emergency shelters and focus on assisting veterans in building the skills necessary for independent living.

  3. Permanent Supportive Housing: Permanent supportive housing combines affordable housing with support services tailored to the needs of homeless veterans. This approach provides a stable, long-term housing solution along with access to case management, healthcare, mental health services, substance abuse treatment, and other supportive resources.

  4. Veterans Villages or Tiny Home Communities: Veterans villages or tiny home communities are emerging as innovative housing solutions for homeless veterans. These communities consist of small, self-contained homes or tiny houses that provide independent living arrangements within a supportive community environment.

  5. Grant and Per Diem (GPD) Program: The GPD program, administered by the VA, funds community-based organizations that provide transitional housing and supportive services to homeless veterans. These organizations may operate shelters or transitional housing facilities specifically designed for veterans.

  6. Housing First Approach: The Housing First approach emphasizes providing immediate access to stable housing for homeless individuals, including veterans, without preconditions or barriers. This approach recognizes that addressing housing instability is the first step towards addressing other underlying issues.

  7. Collaborate with government programs: Work closely with local, state, and federal government agencies that focus on veteran homelessness. These agencies may have funding and resources available to support housing initiatives.

  8. Nonprofit organizations: Partner with nonprofit organizations that specialize in assisting homeless veterans. These organizations often have established programs and networks to provide housing, counseling, and other essential services.

  9. Grants and funding: Research and apply for grants specifically aimed at veteran housing programs. Many foundations and organizations provide funding to support initiatives related to veterans' well-being and homelessness.

  10. Community outreach: Engage with the local community, including businesses, faith-based organizations, and civic groups. Raise awareness about the issue and seek their support through donations, volunteers, or offering housing opportunities.

  11. Transitional and permanent housing options: Establish transitional housing programs that provide temporary shelter and support services to veterans as they transition back into stable housing. Additionally, consider creating permanent housing options specifically designated for homeless veterans.

  12. Supportive services: Recognize that housing is just one aspect of addressing homelessness. Ensure that support services such as mental health counseling, job training, substance abuse treatment, and access to healthcare are available to veterans in need.

  13. Collaborate with other stakeholders: Work with local healthcare providers, social workers, and community organizations to create a comprehensive support system for homeless veterans. Collaboration and coordination among different service providers can greatly enhance the effectiveness of your efforts.
