Veteran Transitional Housing Program

A New Life Home Rehab Group, operates a homeless veteran’s transitional housing program. This project provides transitional housing and support services for homeless veterans, families, and single parents that are transitioning from the military back into the civilian way of life.  Male and female veterans can be served at one time.  The main goals are to help each veteran achieve greater self-determination, improved residential stability, and increase income and/or job skills. These goals are achieved through individual service plans that are developed by the case manager with the input of each individual client. Each veteran who consistently follows his/her service plan developed by a case manager, complies with the service plan developed by the organizations social workers, and follows all policy/procedures of the program will be in good standing and may be considered a successful graduate of the transitional housing program. Successful graduates of the program may be eligible for additional supportive services such as rental and home buying assistance, relocation allowance and home furnishings, depending on the individual veteran’s need and the availability of funding. Individuals who qualify for this program must obtain a DD214 that states they have earned an honorable discharge. The time a veteran may participate in the transitional housing program cannot exceed 24 months.

This program’s role is that of a transitional housing provider dedicated to specifically serving homeless veterans.
