Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)

Serving veterans and their families to attain housing stability

The goal of the SSVF program is to promote housing stability among very low-income Veterans and their families, who are homeless, in housing crisis or at imminent risk of losing housing, through various supportive and financial services.

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 and provide support for veterans or family members who need it.

  • Case Management
  • Eviction Prevention Assistance
  • Deposit, Rental and Utility Assistance
  • Connection to Veteran Services
  • Connection to Social Security Benefits
  • Referrals and assistance with finding services
  • A safe and confidential place to talk about your personal situation and get guidance
