Hope for Veterans Transitional Housing Program (R)

In an attempt to help veterans break the cycle of homelessness and despair, Community Hope developed the largest transitional housing program in New Jersey for homeless veterans in 2004. Located at the Veterans Affairs Healthcare Campus in Lyons NJ, Community Hope helps 95 veterans a day overcome homelessness through the comprehensive services we offer at Hope for Veterans, including case management and recovery services, computer training, employment services, and transportation. Upon graduation, we link veterans to permanent housing and community-based services.

Population(s) Served

Community Residences with professional counselors providing intensive on-site support 24-hrs/day and help individuals take the first steps toward recovery and community reintegration after psychiatric hospitalization. Individuals are afforded the opportunity to establish greater self-sufficiency while continuing to receive intensive support services daily.

Population(s) Served

A proactive approach to helping veterans and their families with immediate support when facing homelessness. We provide rapid re-housing to homeless veterans in addition to keeping veteran households from losing their housing when they are facing eviction. Our first priority is to either assist the family in remaining in their current housing, or, if they are homeless, to quickly locate and help them secure affordable housing. To accomplish this, we assist in the housing search; provide access to emergency housing when possible in the interim; intervene with landlords; provide support and case management services that can include assistance with medical care, mental health or substance abuse treatment, child care and job training. Temporary financial assistance may also be available to help with such expenses as security deposits, back rent, utility payments or bedding and household essentials.
