Supporting At-Risk Veterans And Their Families

WHAT PROGRAMS, ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS ARE AVAILABLE?

Housing is our number one service—whether for one night, one week, or extended stay. The Veteran and the Veteran’s family, when applicable, must pay for the room for one week in advance, complete the application (attached at the end of this packet), and sit for an interview within 72 hours of arriving at the property to ascertain what assistance or scholarships may be available to help offset the housing costs.

Services and activities available to our Veterans may include:

• Access to activities (i.e., with animals, farming, horticulture, sports, community outreaches, and event participation)
• Access to employment and career opportunities
• Addiction counseling an/or support (AA and NA)
• Assistance (basic) to courts and introduction to Legal Aide, Veterans Court, Drug Court, etc. for eligible Veterans
• Assistance in obtaining driver’s license or other photo identification card(s)
• Assistance in obtaining a replacement social security card
• Assistance in obtaining the medical, dental and/or psychological assistance the Veteran may need
• Assistance in obtaining Veteran’s V.A. benefits
• Assistance to register to vote
• Mentoring young boys (for male Veterans) or young girls (for female Veterans)
• Provide life skills training
• Provide religious participation and/or worship service(s)
• Résumé writing and job interview training

WHAT IS THE COST TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM?

There is no credit check to determine if the Veteran is a good credit risk. Oftentimes, our Veterans have fallen on hard times and their credit and income are a mess. That is one of the reasons we are here—to help Veterans get off the streets, obtain the medical and psychological assistance they may need, provide life skills training, addiction counseling or support, and access to good employment and career opportunities—often simply by providing a safe, stable and non-judgmental environment while the Veteran gets his or her personal life together.

Our hotel is a for-profit enterprise. We “rent” hotel rooms to the public. We strive to provide the best possible living and guest environment possible for our guests. Our rates to eligible Veterans and their families is a discount from what we charge the general public. Further, when available, we provide “scholarship” money derived from public donations to our PROGRAM to help offset the housing costs of the program.
