Veterans – Supportive Services for Veterans and Families
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. In 2013, Together was awarded an SSVF Grant from the VA.
Together provides eligible Veteran families with outreach, case management, and assistance in obtaining VA and other benefits, which may include: Health Care Services, Daily Living Services, Personal Finance Planning Services, Transportation Services, Fiduciary and Payee Services, Legal Services, Child Care Services, and Housing Counseling Services.
In addition, Together provides time-limited payments to third parties (e.g., landlords, utility companies, moving companies, and licensed child care providers) if these payments help Veteran families stay in or acquire permanent housing on a sustainable basis.
Rent, Utilities and Deposits
Together provides short term financial assistance for Rent, Utilities and Deposits to individuals and families to avoid or end homelessness.
