They offer many services from housing and employment support to mental health care, in order to help veterans overcome the barriers that stand between them and long-term stability.
Under the SSVF program, VA awards grants to private non-profit organizations and consumer cooperatives who can provide supportive services to very low-income Veteran families living in or transitioning to permanent housing.
