Harvest House believes that all people, including veterans, have the right to a safe and stable place to live.
Veterans Empowered through Transitional Services
Higher rates of physical and emotional trauma, substance abuse, and unemployment make veterans twice as likely to become homeless than non-veterans. Although these individuals are revered for their service, there is a monumental lack of programs and social networks to help returning soldiers adjust to civilian life.
The VETS program at Harvest House assists male veterans who have struggled with emotional trauma and substance abuse after their service by offering:
- housing set in a therapeutic community,
- recovery & life skills classes
- & case management services
