Support Services for Veteran Families
helping veteran families
The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that on one single night in January 2011 67,495 Veterans were homeless and living on the streets of the same nation that they had dedicated their lives to serving. Funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs, the SSVF (‘Support Services for Veteran Families’) Program was founded upon the principle that every Veteran has a right to housing. By providing support at a community level, we can end homelessness of the Veteran population. Volunteers of America’s Northern Colorado SSVF Program strives to do this by providing supportive services to extremely low or very low-income veterans in Boulder, Larimer, Logan, Morgan and Weld Counties.

- Housing counseling
