Housing Programs for Veterans

Why are there homeless Veterans?

The reality is after serving our Country and protecting our homes and liberty they return to civilian life with no job, limited job skills, loss of family, and identity and eventually homelessness.

Many veterans fall into homelessness or poverty because the skills they learned in the military aren't transferable for the civilian workforce. Post-traumatic stress disorder, known as PTSD, and substance abuse contribute to problems that lead to homelessness or risk of homelessness for veterans. This is often compounded by a lack of family and social support networks.

These issues along with feelings of isolation, loneliness, and worry about finances often lead to severe depression, substance and alcohol addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder and many other “invisible” disabilities.

Without a job, income, family support, and just not knowing how to put all the pieces together, the Veteran finds themselves homeless.

Veteran's Housing Programs

  • Transitional Housing Programs

    For Veterans

    Studies show that the most effective programs for homeless and at-risk veterans are community-based, nonprofit, “veterans helping veterans” groups. Programs that seem to work best is transitional housing with the camaraderie of living in structured, substance-free environments with fellow veterans who are succeeding at bettering themselves.

    To be eligible for these housing program an individual must provide a DD214 (release papers from the military) that shows their discharge was not dishonorable. In addition, they must be homeless, have zero to low income and must be willing to work on the issues that created the homeless situation.

    The transitional Programs of VCHC provide this support while assisting each Veteran attain their goals to live a productive life in their Community.
