Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)

The Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program is funded by the United States Department of Veteran Affairs and is administered through A Safe Haven Foundation to provide supportive services for low or very low-income veteran families residing in or transitioning to permanent housing.

This program provides case management and supportive services to prevent the imminent loss of a Veteran’s home or identify a new, more suitable housing situation for the veteran or his or her family; or to rapidly re-house veterans and their families who are experiencing homelessness and might remain homeless without this assistance. 

The program’s goal is to help participants to exit to a permanent housing destination, to maintain or increase income and/or employment, and to be connected to veteran benefits.

You May Qualify If:

  • You are a veteran or a veteran family member
  • Your income does not exceed 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI)
  • Your housing status is in one of the following three categories:
    • You reside in housing and lack the ability to pay all of your bills
    • You are currently homeless or at risk of being homeless
    • You have left permanent housing within the last 90 days to seek other housing that better meets your family’s needs or preferences
