Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) is designed to rapidly re-house veteran families experiencing homelessness and prevent homelessness for those at imminent risk due to a housing crisis.

SSVF’s success is dependent on the use of a veteran-centered, equity-led, housing first approach. This proven model focuses on helping veterans and their family’s access and sustain permanent rental housing as quickly as possible, without preconditions, while facilitating access to needed supportive services to sustain permanent housing and improve their quality of life. This broad range of services are offered both to address barriers to housing placement and to sustain veteran families in housing once the presenting housing crisis has been addressed.
