4 units of permanent supportive housing for Veterans at risk of becoming homeless.

When looking for shelter options, it's important to connect with local VA facilities, homeless service providers, and community-based organizations in your area. They can provide information about available shelter programs, eligibility criteria, and the application process.


Please note that the availability of specific shelter options may vary depending on your location. It's advisable to reach out to local resources for the most accurate and up-to-date information.


Providing housing shelter for veterans who are homeless or at risk is an important endeavor to support those who have served their country. 

  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 organizations: Partner with local, regional, or national organizations that specialize in veteran services and homelessness prevention. This collaboration can help leverage resources, expertise, and funding to provide better support to veterans in need.

  8. Establish transitional housing programs: Develop transitional housing programs that offer temporary shelter and support services for homeless veterans. These programs can provide a safe and stable environment while veterans work towards securing permanent housing and accessing necessary resources such as healthcare, employment assistance, and mental health services.

  9. Provide permanent supportive housing: Create or advocate for the availability of permanent supportive housing units specifically designated for veterans. These units would not only offer affordable housing but also provide ongoing support services such as case management, counseling, and life skills training.

  10. Foster community partnerships: Engage with local communities, businesses, and individuals who are willing to contribute resources, volunteer their time, or offer job opportunities for veterans. Building strong community partnerships can enhance the support network available to homeless or at-risk veterans.

  11. Raise awareness and educate: Conduct public awareness campaigns to educate the community about the challenges faced by homeless veterans and the importance of providing housing support. This can help reduce stigmatization, generate empathy, and encourage public support for initiatives aimed at assisting veterans.

  12. Advocate for policy changes: Work with local and national policymakers to advocate for policy changes that address the unique needs of homeless veterans. This can include increased funding for veteran housing programs, improvements to existing support systems, and the development of comprehensive strategies to prevent veteran homelessness.
