Veterans have higher rates of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder and higher suicide rates than the general population.
Mental illness often goes hand in hand with other challenges for veterans, such as job loss, homelessness and addiction.
- Sean, VA Community Support Mental Health program resident
We offer two housing programs specifically suited to the particular needs of veterans. The overall goal of our programs for veterans is to decrease the risk of homelessness and help veterans live independently in the community. Both programs operate out of Heritage Place at Renaissance Village.
VA Case Management
This program offers time-limited case management for up to six months with the goal of improving retention of housing for veterans and/or veteran families who were previously homeless.
VA Housing Opportunities Program (VA-HOP)
The VA-HOP program provides up to 12 months of transitional community-based housing for veterans and their families who are struggling with homelessness. The program provides a thorough needs assessment, and veterans also receive employment assistance, case management and referrals to community resources and housing opportunities.
VA Community Assistance Support Services (VA-CASS)
The VA-CASS program supports homeless veterans who have medical, physical, mental health or substance abuse needs. Veterans enrolled in VA-CASS spend up to two years in the program, during which time they receive intensive case management focused on stabilizing their various health need and transitioning them to safe, affordable housing in the community.
