Veteran Services

In partnership with the Veterans Administration and referring agencies, Volunteers of America's Veteran Services provides wrap-around support to honorably discharged United States homeless veterans.  All veteran programs provide help to facilitate individuals and/or veteran families to become more self-sufficient.

According to a December 2011 survey, 67,495 veterans are homeless on any given night and twice as many experience homelessness during a year.

Liberty Landing, Fort Wayne 

Case management and 40 beds are provided for veterans transitioning out of homelessness as part of the Grant and Per Diem (GPD) program.

The Richard Lugar Safe Haven for Veterans, Fort Wayne

The 25-bed Safe Haven is a specialized version of the Healthcare for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) Contractual Residential Program, funded by the Veterans Administration.  As a 'Housing First' program veterans do not need to make an initial commitment to sobriety/substance free living, but is expected to work with their case manager toward a lifestyle conducive to stable housing. Read this blog post to learn more about how this housing model helps homeless Veterans. 

Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) Program

Through the SSVF program, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs aims to improve the housing stability of very low-income veteran families by providing intensive case management and assisting participants to obtain VA and other community benefits.  Veterans can be connected with benefits such as vocational and rehabilitation counseling, job training and educational assistance, health care referral, transportation, legal service referral, child care and other services. For more information call 855-332-VETS (8387). Read Roberta's story to learn more about how SSVF helped her and her family. 

SSVF Service Areas include the following Indiana counties:  Bartholomew, Brown, Davies, Dubois, Gibson, Johnson, Knox, Lawrence, Marion, Monroe, Morgan, Perry, Pike, Posey, Shelby, Spencer, Vanderburgh and Warrick.

Homeless veteran reintegration program

The Homeless Veteran Reintegration Program (HVRP) is a federal program funded through the US Department of Labor. It focuses on identifying and addressing barriers to employment faced by chronically homeless veterans in Allen County (greater Fort Wayne). For more information, contact Clauzette Moss at or by telephone at 260-498-2263.
