There are between 150,000 and 200,000 homeless veterans on any given night.  Many of these veterans reside in temporary shelters, on the streets, and in other places that are not meant for human habitation. Veterans represent between one fourth and one fifth of the homeless population. In addition, while many veterans and their families currently have housing, they are struggling to make ends meet and are thereby at risk of falling into homelessness. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that over the course of the year, 336,627 veterans experience homelessness.

They are veterans of different conflicts, including World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Afghanistan, Iraq, Grenada, Panama, and Lebanon. They are men and women, and present with a variety of needs beyond a stable and safe place to sleep each night.  Among these new veterans, women are more common than in the past.

Eagle’s Landing

Volunteers of America Southeast provides a variety of services and support to the homeless veteran population. One of the most significant resources we have to offer is Eagle’s Landing.

Eagle’s Landing is a 38 unit transitional housing community with wrap-around supportive services which are designed to meet the unique needs of homeless veterans. The program serves homeless veterans who served in the active military, naval or air service and who were discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.

Homeless veterans can participate in the program for up to two years, but on average they typically stay between 9-12 months. While in our care, each veteran receives clean and safe housing while they work with program staff to develop and implement a plan for achieving stability in their life.

Valor Grove

VOA Southeast is currently completing construction on another worthwhile project, Valor Grove, that will provide affordable housing to veterans and their families. The 50-unit project is located on the VA campus in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and is scheduled to be completed by November, 2014.

Vgrove

Valor Grove is the first of its kind in the State of Alabama, where the Veterans Administration and Low Income Housing Tax Credits have been combined to create affordable housing. Once operational, the units will have HUD VASH vouchers which will provide rental
subsidy for each unit.
