In addition to the many issues facing our veterans today, the lack of affordable housing is a major cause of veteran homelessness. VCHC has developed several permanent housing programs for both individual veterans and veterans with families.

These programs provide a permanent housing option for veterans who were formerly homeless or are at risk of losing their housing.

VCHC provides support services to help veterans maintain their housing and live a productive life in their community.

While these programs provide permanent housing, veterans are encouraged (with staff support) to develop a plan to eventually transition to independent living.

These plans include developing financial stability, achieving a positive health status, family reunification, and overcoming the reasons that led to their unhoused status.

After reuniting the family, VCHC support services ensure the veteran maintains their housing and receives all the services needed to maintain a productive life.
