Supportive Services for Veteran Families
Serving Veterans experiencing or at risk of homelessness
The US Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates that, on one single night in January 2019, 37,085 Veterans were experiencing homelessness in the same nation they had dedicated their lives to serving.
Funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs, the SSVF ('Supportive 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 among the Veteran population. Through the provision of outreach, case-management services, assistance in obtaining benefits and emergency financial resources, the SSVF Program seeks to prevent Veterans and their families from becoming homeless and to rapidly rehouse those who have lost their homes. It is the intention of Volunteers of America Colorado Branch to break the cycle of homelessness among Colorado's Veteran population.
Program participants must be Veterans (defined as having served at least one day on active duty in any service branch), and may not have received a dishonorable discharge. Every client must have documentation of their Veteran status, income verification documentation (e.g. paystubs), or be willing to certify themselves as homeless.
Clients must also fall into one of three categories
Category 1 – Residing in permanent housing but at imminent risk of homelessness.
Category 2 – Homeless, but scheduled to be permanently housed within 90 days.
Category 3 – Exited permanent housing in the last 90 days.
Note: Other eligibility criteria may apply depending upon program requirements.
