A Reunion 25 Years in the Making

60-something veteran of Vietnam, Ken enrolled in St. Vincent de Paul’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program (SSVF) during fall, preceding a winter that was expected to be extraordinarily harsh. He had been homeless for the better part of 25 years and was suffering from PTSD. He got by on a small VA disability benefit, living rough in the woods, or in his car. 

Within a month, SSVF staff secured suitable permanent housing for Ken, a unit in a quiet, woodsy area perfect for finding peace and relaxation.  But transitioning into housing is not always easy.

Little did JR know at the time that his status as a military veteran would make the difference in an equally tough housing market.
