About Veterans & Community Housing Coalition

Our Mission

To provide housing and support services to all homeless military veterans and their families and to advocate on behalf of all military veterans and their families and to provide housing opportunities for low income households.

Transitional Housing Programs

For Veterans

Studies show that the most effective programs for homeless and at-risk veterans are community-based, nonprofit, “veterans helping veterans” groups. Programs that seem to work best is transitional housing with the camaraderie of living in structured, substance-free environments with fellow veterans who are succeeding at bettering themselves.

To be eligible for these housing program an individual must provide a DD214 (release papers from the military) that shows their discharge was not dishonorable. In addition, they must be homeless, have zero to low income and must be willing to work on the issues that created the homeless situation.

The transitional Programs of VCHC provide this support while assisting each Veteran attain their goals to live a productive life in their Community.

Permanent Housing Programs

For Veterans

In addition to the many issues facing our Veterans today, the lack of affordable housing is a major cause of homelessness for Veterans. Over the years, VCHC has developed several permanent housing programs for Veterans and Veterans with families.

These programs provide a permanent housing option for Veterans who were formerly homeless or at risk to become homeless.

To be eligible for these housing program an individual must provide a DD214 (release papers from the military) that shows their discharge was not dishonorable. In addition, they must be homeless, have zero to low income and must be willing to work on the issues that created the homeless situation.
