Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) can make living a little less stressful
when falling into hard times or financial strain. The focus of the SSVF program is to promote housing stability among very low-income Veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing.
On any given night, CVI houses, feeds, and provides reintegration services to more than 300 veterans. Success is achieved when a veteran has a source of income, physical, mental, and spiritual health, as well as a place to call their own.
Without a safe environment with supportive housing and services, many veterans could not break the cycle of homelessness and move on to jobs and permanent housing.
The Bureau of Transitional Housing Programs and Services offers transitional housing for homeless male and female veterans with wrap-around supportive services designed to assist veterans reintegrating into the community.
The Center for Veterans Issues Permanent Supportive Housing programs provides permanent supportive housing to literally homeless and disabled U.S. Veterans and their families. Our programs use a client-centered strength-based approach that focuses on participant’s strengths and assists the individual in establishing their own long and short term goals.
We utilize a housing first philosophy that does not require individuals to participate in other services before they can obtain safe, sanitary, affordable housing. We believe that a place to live, a home, is essential for an individual so they can begin to heal and deal with other barriers to a self-sufficient life such as PTSD, AODA issues or other physical and mental health issues.
Organic Therapy is the participation in horticultural activities to achieve the improvement of mental, physical and emotional well being, the process itself is considered the therapeutic activity rather than the end product.
Horticultural therapy helps improve memory, cognitive abilities, task initiation, language skills, and socialization. In physical rehabilitation, horticultural therapy can help strengthen muscles and improve coordination, balance, and endurance.
In vocational horticultural therapy settings, people learn to work independently, problem-solve, and follow directions.
