Helping low-income veteran families transition to permanent housing

I am pleased to introduce Catherine Todd from Easter Seals Oregon as our guest blogger today

Supportive Services for Veteran Families program

by Catherine Todd, Director, SCSEP and HVRP

I have exciting news to share from Easter Seals Oregon: we’ve been awarded a grant from the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program. Over the course of one year, Easter Seals Oregon and our partner, Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency will serve 75 veteran families. Our goal is to stabilize 80% of homeless participants in permanent housing and maintain housing for 90% of at-risk participants.

The SSVF program is designed to improve housing stability for very low-income veteran households. The program will provide eligible veteran households with outreach, case management and assistance in obtaining Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and other benefits, including housing counseling services. Easter Seals Oregon will provide the employment readiness training, job development and employment retention services to the Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, and program staff will provide the following to eligible families:

  • Assessment of household needs
  • Housing placement assistance
  • Financial assistance for rent, utilities, rent/utility deposits, security deposits and application fees to support housing stability
  • Home visits and housing counseling services
  • Coordination with other community resources and support providers to meet household needs, including health care, daily living, transportation, child care, legal, personal financial planning, fiduciary and payee services
  • Case management to support adults to attain goals which contribute to the self-sufficiency of the household

Thanks to this SSVF grant, Easter Seals Oregon and Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency will be able to provide a range of services that promote housing stability and play a key role in connecting veterans and their family members to VA services such as mental health care and other benefits. Visit the Department of Veterans Affairs Web site to find out about other services for homeless veteran families across the country.

    Stephanie,
    No one who has served our country should ever go without a safe, stable place to call home. Through my work at Easter Seals I’ve learned that the VA has programs all over the country providing individualized, comprehensive care to Veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Even if you don’t live in Oregon, where the program Katherine Todd is talking about here is going on, you can call 877-4AID-VET (424-3838) to be connected 24/7 with VA’s services to overcome or prevent homelessness for yourself or a Veteran you know.

Not to mention my middle daughter born 1980 took three years two moves and a trip to a civilian hospital in Ca. To diagnose Pryvate Kinase Defiectioncy then my back broke workingv3 jobs cause air force fired tom and took his self esteem in a work place as to at 58 he’s still trying to fit in. All this I thought was way past what any mother should go thru then 1-5-08. Some crazy ass physco kidnapped murdered blunt force trama broke bat in pieces. Then did unspeakable things to her. I being handicapped cannot let it go I think my own home somewhere safe would be godsend
