6 units providing housing for people and veterans who were chronically at risk of becoming homeless.

Providing housing for people and veterans who were chronically at risk of becoming homeless. 

  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.
