If the veteran is evicted, this program provides assistance with securing a new home and support services to help them maintain it.

    Temporary financial assistance can be provided for rent, security deposits, and utility costs if the Veteran qualifies. Other assistance can be provided to help the veteran maintain their employment.

  • VASH Vouchers

    (Veterans Administration Supportive Housing)

    VCHC partners with the Stratton VA to assist veterans in need of housing assistance and case management services.

    Who is eligible for this assistance? 

    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.

    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.

    Participation in this program is dependent on the availability of vouchers.
