Far too many of our veterans are homeless. Help For Homeless Veterans
Grants in the amount of almost $300 million will go to 319 community agencies in an effort to help approximately 120,000 homeless and at-risk veterans and their families. Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) is the name of the program.
The goal is to provide transportation, healthcare services, personal financial planning services, and housing counseling services, to name a few. According to the VA website, this is the third year such grants have assisted veterans and their families. Last year this program provided approximately 50,000 veterans and families with $100 million in assistance. According to the 2012 point-in-time estimates, homelessness among veterans has declined 17.2 percent since 2009. With the goal of eliminating veteran homelessness declared in 2009, this is definitely a step in the right direction. You can read more about this program if you click here.
