Supportive Services for Veteran Families
Proudly serving veterans and their families with the goal of stable housing
Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) is a new program at St. Vincent de Paul aimed at helping homeless veterans and those at risk of homelessness with the resources needed to become or remain permanently housed. Sponsored by a grant from the Veterans Administration (VA), SSVF provides financial assistance and case management with the objective of helping our country’s veterans achieve housing stability. Our mission is to help the VA reach their target of ending veteran homelessness by 2015 and provide support for veterans or family members who need it.
