SUPPORTIVE SERVICES  FOR VETERAN FAMILIES

SERVING THOSE WHO SERVED

The Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program (SSVF) helps veteran families obtain stable housing, whether they are currently homeless or on the verge of becoming homeless.

Those who are homeless, first receive assistance to find suitable housing. Then, Case Managers work with the family to provide needed temporary financial assistance, linkage with community resources and US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, and a plan to improve housing stability
