Supportive Services for Veterans Families

Help for very low-income veterans and their families to prevent homelessness, or rapidly rehouse those who already are homeless.

From Lake Erie to Lake Michigan: our veterans matter, their service matters and their dignity is deserved.

Have you ever served in the military? Are you experiencing housing crisis?

Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) provides short-term supportive services for very low-income veterans and their families to help with rent evictions and to rapidly re-house those who are already homeless. We provide case management and temporary financial assistance to connect eligible veterans in housing crisis with needed services to promote housing stability to their families.

Volunteers of America Michigan has been working with our nation’s veterans since World War I. Our staff works day in and day out to ensure that our heroes have the tools necessary to build their life here at home.
