The purpose of the Veterans Accession House is to "Help Those Who Served First." As a public benefit corporation, non-profit 501 (c) (3), we offer housing for Veterans experiencing homeless or at risk of homelessness. As a service provider, we have learned that there are many organizations aiding veterans experiencing health, dependency, disabilities and even homelessness. However, there is a gap in services to help Homeless Student and Working Veterans; a segment of the Veteran population who are under-represented. Statistically, local colleges, State, and private universities report homelessness in their student population; within this number exists an unacceptable percentage who are veterans. This is where Veterans Accession House makes a difference. We provide housing to our Veterans so they can focus on what important to them, maintain employment and remaining in school.
VAH offers two separate programs which are aimed at reducing veteran homelessness. Service Intensive Transitional Housing (SITH) aims to find Veterans permanent housing while concurrently working with the Veterans to improve or stabilize other areas of their life. VAH also offers Bridge Housing for HUD-VASH grantees while they seek and secure permanent housing. VAH offers short-term transitional housing for Veterans who have been offered and accepted a permanent housing voucher but are currently in transition to a permanent living situation.
