Providing housing assistance and related supportive services to qualifying veteran families

The goal of the SSVF program is to promote housing stability among very low income Veteran families. While encouraging Veterans’ personal strengths, SSVF uses a housing first approach designed to house Veterans and their families. By connecting veterans to resources and services, the SSVF staff seeks to prevent and reduce the episode of homelessness. Case Managers assist SSVF participants with accessing VA and other benefits, which may include:

  • Health Care Services
  • Fiduciary and Payee Services 
  • Daily Living Services
  • Legal Services 
  • Personal Financial Planning Services
  • Child Care Services
  • Transportation Services
  • Housing Counseling Services 

Case Management reduces barriers that keep a Veteran and his or her family from obtaining or remaining in housing. Resources may be available to help eligible Veterans’ families stay in or acquire permanent housing on a sustainable basis.

Veteran Eligibility Includes:

  • Veteran with a discharge other than dishonorable
  • A single person or family in which the head of household, or the spouse of the head of household is a Veteran 
  • Very low income of less than 50% of the area median
  • Currently homeless 
  • Timing out of transitional housing


Our Nation must provide sufficient client access to healthcare, adequate benefits, and the supplemental resources our veterans were promised and so dearly need. We owe our heroes no less.
