Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)

The SSVF program provides financial assistance to veteran households that would otherwise become homeless and housing placement assistance to unsheltered households or households living in emergency shelter.  Assistance provided by Case Managers, Case Aides, and the outreach team include funds to pay for deposits and first month’s rent, eviction prevention, utility deposits and arrears payments, assistance with the purchase of items to furnish and outfit units, and supportive services.  Program staff contact and engage homeless veterans through street outreach and in-reach at the Drop in Center.  The program serves the Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and Lake Charles areas.
