“We know the many sacrifices veterans have made and the economic challenges they face when they return to civilian life,” said NeighborWorks America CEO Eileen Fitzgerald in a statement. “Our NeighborWorks organizations are ensuring that veterans have the resources and tools to improve their lives.”
Various NeighborWorks organizations have served more than 860 veterans and have made their mark in different areas like South Florida where NeighborWorks partnered with Carrfour Supportive Housing to provide housing services to vets. Some of the services include foreclosure intervention.
Over in Tucson, Arizona, “Project Action for Veterans” gives customized support to veterans and their families. The program provides housing assistance as well as vocational support for homeless veterans.
And in Poughkeepsie, New York, NeighborWorks launched the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The program aims to promote housing stability among very low-income veteran families who reside in or are transitioning to permanent housing, according to the program. Some of the services include VA benefits assistance and helping vets find local resources for housing.
