Providing Veterans Services in Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Southern Indiana, and Southern Ohio.
Supportive Services for Veterans and Families (SSVF) Programs:
Volunteers of America's SSVF programs, funded by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, provide supportive services to very low-income veteran families living in or transitioning to permanent housing. These programs provide eligible veteran families with outreach, case management, and assistance in obtaining VA and other benefits, which may include: health care services, daily living services, personal financial planning services, transportation services, fiduciary and payee services, legal services, child care services, and housing counseling services. In addition, programs may also provide time-limited payments to third parties (e.g., landlords, utility companies, moving companies, and licensed child care providers) if these payments help veteran families stay in or acquire permanent housing on a sustainable basis.
Homeless Veterans Transitional Treatment Program (HVTTP)
Located at the Lexington Veteran Affairs Medical Center, Volunteers of America’s Homeless Veterans Transitional Treatment Program (HVTTP) provides an intensive, residential therapeutic treatment setting for up to 40 homeless male veterans struggling with addiction. Clients undergo individual and group counseling by certified alcohol and drug counselors, attend psycho-educational and 12-Step support group meetings, and receive referrals for educational and career development. Additionally, many clients in the later stages of the program are employed and working toward securing permanent housing of their own.
Homeless Veterans Reintegration Project (HVRP)
Recognizing the need to reach out to homeless veterans in their everyday world, our Homeless Veterans Reintegration Project helps veterans find secure employment and stable, affordable housing. Outreach workers can arrange home visits with veterans in outlying areas who are unable to travel to the program office. Through partnerships with state, federal, and local community agencies, this innovative program provides access to career counseling, job training, case management, support groups, and follow-up services.

Volunteers of America has a long history of working with individuals and families facing substance abuse problems. We offer a complete system of care ranging from community outreach, prevention, assessment, outpatient treatment, long-term residential treatment and aftercare services.
