Veteran Program

What Do We Do For Our Veterans?

Our Veterans Services Programs provide supportive housing and intense case management services for homeless veterans, referred to us by Veterans Affairs (VA) and other agencies.

We have five Programs, Bridge, Low Demand, Service Intensive, Case Management and Permanent Housing .

Bridge Program

This Program is for Veterans and their families who have been offered and have accepted a permanent housing solution by the VA or another entity, but are not able to immediately enter their chosen housing.  Length of stay is usually less than 90 days in various properties scattered around the city of Titusville.

Low Demand Program

This Program is for chronically homeless Veterans and Veterans who have been unsuccessful in traditional treatment settings.  The Program does not require sobriety or compliance with mental health treatment as a condition of admission or continued stay. Overall, demands are kept to a minimum; however, services are available as needed and 24/7 security is provided in a 10-unit apartment building set in our Victory Village wooded campus in Titusville.   The goal of the Program, which typically is up to two years in length, is to assist the veteran’s integration into society.

Assistance may include: job training, job placement, applying for disability benefits, budgeting and other educational classes, counseling, social activities, transportation, etc.

Service Intensive Program

This Program is for homeless Veterans who have lower acuity, i.e. they have less critical social or medical issues than those in our Low Demand Program, but are still offered the same wide range of services and support.

Case Management Program

This Program provides case management support for Veterans who have graduated from our Programs or other VA Programs and who are now in their own homes, but require some support for up to six months to ensure they have a sustainable lifestyle that enables them to remain in their homes.

Permanent Housing Program

This Program provides 10 housing units for retired and permanently disabled Veterans, also set in our Victory Village wooded campus in Titusville. The tranquil setting allows our disabled Veterans to enjoy their daily activities without concern of external stress that may disrupt they ability to remain in a stable environment. The level of support is less intense than in our other support programs, and the case management and program plans are designed to meet the needs of each individual veteran as their needs change.

Criteria for Admission

A veteran must be homeless with confirming documentation from an organization like the Veteran’s Administration, law enforcement, Salvation Army, shelters, churches, etc. Applicant must produce identification such as driver’s license, DD 214, Social security card, birth certificate, or state identification card, and for disabled veterans, proof of disability.
