Serving Veterans in Saratoga, Warren, Washington, Fulton, Montgomery, Schoharie and Schenectady Counties, this unique program offers support and temporary financial assistance to veterans and their families. The program assists and veterans with families obtain or sustain housing, VA benefits, health care, employment, and public benefits.
Through this program we are able to rapidly rehouse a Veteran who has been evicted. We work with Utility Companies to prevent shut off. If the Veteran is evicted, this program provides assistance with securing a new home and support services to help them maintain it. Serving seven Counties, this program assists over 100 veterans a year.
Temporary financial assistance can be provided for rent, security deposits, utility costs, if the Veteran qualifies financially.
Other assistance can be provided to help the Veteran maintain their employment.
VCHC partners with the Stratton VA to assist Veterans in need of housing assistance and case management services.
All veterans (singles and families) who meet the federal definition of homelessness, were honorably discharged and are determined by the Stratton VA to need case management services in order to obtain and sustain their housing are eligible for this assistance.
Homeless veterans receive a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher from HUD that is coupled with case management and clinical services provided by the VA. Eligible individuals and veterans are identified by VA.
