All people who have served in the military – whether they have seen combat or not – are Veterans and they may qualify to access housing and employment services from Central City Concern. Veterans must first attend a half-hour orientation held every Tuesday at 9:45 a.m. and Thursdays at 1:45 p.m. They will meet a Veteran representative at the conclusion of the orientation.
We provide specialized services to male and female Veterans.
Housing, Employment or Benefits, Case Management
The Veterans Grant & Per Diem is a transitional, clean & sober, housing program that helps Veterans obtain permanent housing and income (through employment, entitlements or benefits acquisition) and increase personal empowerment. The program has 50 beds for men, and an additional 22 beds for women.
