The Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)
SSVF program is designed to assist low-income veterans and their families in obtaining and maintaining stable housing. We have been awarded a grant from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to serve veterans throughout Southern Nevada.
Supportive services can include case management, housing counseling, linkage to VA and mainstream benefits/services, temporary financial assistance to address housing barriers , life skills training, budgeting, job preparation, coping skills, housing preparation, credit repair, credit counseling, transportation assistance, landlord/tenant mediation.
Assistance from peer mentors who are veterans themselves will add to the individualized, strength-based approach of care.
Homeless veterans struggling with the disease of addiction are provided with placement in the Adult Rehabilitation Program (ARP), our residential, clinical substance abuse treatment program. The ARP provides an intensive continuum of care program for homeless persons for the treatment of substance abuse, chemical addictions, mental health, and compulsive gambling.
The method is to provide a structured, purposeful, planned, daily regimen in a 24 hour live-in setting, permitting the individual to grow emotionally and intellectually while experiencing a supportive, caring and responsible environment. This truly transformative program gives hope to our veterans and blesses them with an opportunity for a new life filled with potential.
